Chessie Nature Trail

Too bad people spoil it for others

November, 2016 by debprice47

The trail is beautiful! Great surface, views and access BUT in walking the first 2.5 miles from the Lexington end five times - once daily - before and after the Thanksgiving weekend my dog - leashed and kept at my side was aggressively approached,snapped at and barked at by dogs OFF leash whose owners stood by & seemed to think my dog should 'be friends' with thiers. I have a German Shepherd service animal. Come on people.The rules say leashed dogs. Share the trail with some manner's or stay off of it.

Greenbrier River Trail

Wonderful Trail

October, 2016 by steve plattner

I rode much of the trail round trip over Labor Day weekend. I rode from Marlinton to Cass and back, and Marlinton south about 32 miles and back the following day. The trail was in very good shape, with great campsites along the way--one of the most beautiful routes I have ridden. I stayed north of the extensive damage from the June floods which will take a lot of money and time to repair, but you can still experience the large majority of the trail. Highly recommended.

Chessie Nature Trail

Trail is in great condition

October, 2016 by brian.vandegrift.58

After heavy rain passed through the area a few weeks ago, I was afraid that the trail might me a mess but it was in great shape. Biked from downtown Lexington to the trailhead then out toward BV. Nice fall foliage was a bonus.

Greenbrier River Trail

Loved the Trail, hated the horse damage

October, 2016 by mahawor

I biked out and back on the north section from Marlington to Cass. The scenery was amazing. The trail surface was good for most of this section, there were some areas that were torn up pretty bad from horse use though. I'd have given this trail 5 stars if not for the horse damage.

Cranberry Tri-Rivers Rail Trail

Great Time

October, 2016 by drtoddschmidgall

Being a virgin trail rider, wasn't sure what to expect. On 10-16-2016, a warm sunny Sunday afternoon, Rode from Holcomb to the mouth of the Cranberry River in less than an hour. Very clean, level and smooth trail with really nice views of the Cherry River and Gauley. The bonus is met I John S who is takes care of the trail. I will be going back to do the stretch from Richwood to Holcomb.

October, 2016 by orion45

biked this 10-09-2016, in morning.....Peacefull,.quiet,beautifull Piney River views, only 2 other bikers,nice packed gravel trail,easy riding, i did it with my hybrid w/700x 35 tires,no problem, but wider tire footprint would be better,close to Blue Ridge Parkway....trail clean and well maintained..last 5 miles is one way (you need to return on same path) Abit isolated, so be sure to have a pal, or spare tube/kit/.etc, just in case...highly recommend!




East Fork Trail (WV)

pretty trail for an autumn hike

October, 2016 by saheatherly

I hiked this trail with my pup today (October 2). The trees are beginning to turn and the river is lively. A really pretty walk, all in all. I did have to cross the stream 3 times, and honestly could not find my way around this, although the trail notes say to stick to the east side of the stream. The bank was just too steep.

I was glad a I had on long pants, as the nettles are still green and stingy on parts of the trail.

Wolf Creek Greenway

August, 2016 by nicka.wade

I rode this trail from the blue ridge park way down into Vinton. It was an easy ride of gentle downhill and flat sections. Trail condition was excellent with several sections having fresh gravel. The tunnel under Mountain View road is very picturesque.

Where the trail runs under Washington Ave was my only complaint. The tunnel was full of sand and head heights were extremely limited. I had to get off my bike and stoop down to not hit my head.

Virginia Blue Ridge Railway Trail

Most enjoyable

August, 2016 by maus48

Initially hard to find using Google maps app, but well worth the persistence to locate the trailhead. Very level, well-constructed and maintained path. Plenty of benches along the way for rest stops and river views. There are even a few places along the trail where it's safe to enter the water. The trail has markers every 1/4 of a mile, so you know precisely how far you have gone.

Greenbrier River Trail

Greenbrier River Trail Status Update for Visitors

August, 2016 by nancy harris

On June 23, 2016, the Greenbrier River Trail was hit by torrential rains resulting in multiple washouts and landslides affecting most severely the Southernmost 10 miles of the Trail, from Caldwell to Anthony. There is a large washed out section just ¼ mile up the Trail. To avoid having to walk or bike along the road to get around that large washed out area, an alternate parking area has been established just past the washed out area (about ½ mile up the Trail from the old Trailhead parking lot). From the old trailhead parking lot, exit to your left and go about .2 mi. on Stonehouse Road to the first road to your right. Take that road approximately .2 mile to the Trail and the new parking area.
ALTERNATE TRAIL ACCESS:
Repair work on the Trail is ongoing. At the present time, the Southern end of the Trail is open for about 3 miles from the new parking area to another large washed out area. If you would like to access the other beautiful 67 miles of the Trail that are still open, exit the old trailhead parking lot at Caldwell to your left and go about 5 miles up Stonehouse Road, which becomes Brush Road, until you come to a traffic light at the intersection of Brush Road and Rt. 219. The Elks Country Club and golf course will be on your left, the State Road garage on your right, and there will be a bank directly across the intersection. Turn right at the light and head North on Rt. 219 for 7.7 miles to Anthony Road. As you approach Anthony Road, you will pass an Exxon station and then a cemetary on your right. Turn right onto Anthony Road and go approximately 4 miles and you will come to the Greenbrier River Trail at Anthony (MM14.2). Parking is on your left and you will want to head in that direction (North) to access the remaining 67 miles of the Trail. The very scenic drive to Anthony from Caldwell takes about 25-30 minutes and will be well worth the extra time and effort to enjoy the 67 miles of Trail and River to the North. All of the other Trail access points indicated on the Trail map, are open. I am fortunate to live near the Trail and ride it every day. You will not be disappointed!
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
If you want to see for yourself the immensity of the damage to the southern part of the Trail, you can head South on the Trail from Anthony (MM14.2), for about 1.2 miles to MM13, where there is a huge landslide that completely blocks the Trail. Private donations, both large and small, are badly needed to make the necessary repairs to the Trail. Donations can be made to the Greenbrier River Trail Association Reconstruction Fund, PO Box 1, Lewisburg, WV 24901 or online at greenbrierrivertrail.com. All contributions are tax deductible and 100% of the donated money will be used for Trail repairs.

Virginia Blue Ridge Railway Trail

Highly Recommend - Great for Beginners

July, 2016 by pairofskis

This trail is fantastic. Made it to the end and back with my 11yr old son and had no issues. The trail is in perfect condition and is crushed rock the whole way. There are no excessive gradients that would cause the beginner to fret or sweat. Plenty of great places to check out and swim, fish or hang out. We did come across two COPPERHEAD SNAKES - Beware climbing around any rocky river banks! We also saw frogs, a 3.5' black snake and deer. The path is probably a total of 80% shaded by the trees which is also nice.
