Greenbrier River Trail

Great trail!

October, 2020 by thefords

If you come with realistic expectations, you will love this trail. If you expect perfectly groomed trail with multiple towns and cell phone service all of the time, I'd suggest you try something a little tamer. This trail is for those who crave solitude and beauty and don't mind if they have to pay a small price for it. I actually found the track to be pretty good, yes there are some bumps and puddles here and there but more the exception than the rule. Rode the trail from Cass to Caldwell as part of a longer trip and really enjoyed it despite some rain on the 2nd day. I really liked the Cass to Marlinton section as well as the last 10 miles or so into Caldwell. Overall this is a great experience well worth your time.

Potts Valley Rail Trail

Potts Trail

October, 2020 by adcolquhoun

Rode this on 10/5/20 with friends. Mountain bike a must. Trail in poor condition. Numerous fallen trees, long grass, and muddy patches on this short old elevated rail track through the woods. With a little maintenance this could be spectacular.

Greenbrier River Trail

Beautiful wilderness

October, 2020 by dsmyers1969

We rode the trail in three days. Marlinton to Cass and back day one. Renick to Marlinton and back day two, Caldwell to Renick and back day three. The trail was in good shape, we averaged 10 mph. Plenty of wildlife and raw nature. We stayed at the Greenbier State Park cabins. I highly recommend.

Greenbrier River Trail

Gravelbiking The Greenbrier

September, 2020 by keith_clouse

I rode this trail on a gravel bike with bikepacking bags and light weight camping equipment. I started at Cass, WV and did 77 miles the first day, then camped down at the first site on the trail near Caldwell, WV. I then retraced my path back to Cass on the second day. I researched this trail for several months prior to riding so I could get an understanding of trail conditions, features and amenities. This trail is highly impressive in its infrastructure and cleanliness! Starting Cass, with the understanding that The Green Bank National Radio Astronomy Observatory is right over the mountain, you should be aware this is a blackout zone for cellular networks but GPS is still active. The trail hosts an impressive number of campsites, many with facilities and pumps offering potable water. Being a multi-use trail, one should expect hikers, cyclists, joggers and horseback riders. There are several small towns along the way like Marlinton, Seebert and Renick and you’re treated to the grandeur of the Monongahela National Forest, the Watoga State Park and Calvin State Forest. You get two great tunnels and a ton of bridges from truss to girder to flat-deck. Being a railtrail, the surface is mostly level and packed with crushed limestone. Sometimes you get a little double track with a grassy center but mostly smooth sailing. A few puddles here and there, but paying attention to the weather prior to your trip can alleviate some suffering and/or misery. Overall, this was a fantastic trip that exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend this journey but will stress that basic planning and simple preparation are key to enjoying all this phenomenal trail has to offer!

Greenbrier River Trail

If it has rained recently, be prepared to get wet and dirty....sigh

September, 2020 by bikin-mike

I can’t believe I’m writing a negative review of this HoF trail. After COVID-19 killed our original vacation plans, I was looking forward to 77 miles of social distance riding in the beauty of WV. After a quick snack at the lovely historical Cass General Store, started our ride to Marlinton. We were dry for about 30 mins then rode in a light rain for about 45 mins. That’s when the fun ended. Trail is part standard 8ft wide cinders, mostly two 12” tracks with grass and weeds in the center, and part all grass with two little 6” tracks. After the rain, the tracks became puddles and sometimes little streams. We tried to avoid them by switching from one side to the other, but the center grassy part was usually pretty soft so we found it was better to just splash through the puddles. Luckily, most of them were shallow and solid bottoms so it was easy going, but it just sprayed water and grime all over us and our bikes. Everything was coated with brown/black gunk by time we got to Marlinton. Rained overnight, so the next morning I rode to the end of the pavement at about MP 53 and then saw more puddles. Not doing that for a 2nd day.

My son rode the entire trail (see the pic of him and his filthy bike)and he said it seemed to get better after he left Pocahontas County and got near Caldwell. Maybe more maintenance money at that end?

My guess is it takes a day or two for these puddles to dry out because of all the shade?!?!

The trail has everything I love in a trail. Along a river, lots of curves, tunnels, a few bridges, beautiful scenery, lots of shade, and peaceful and quiet. So bummed that mud puddles took the joy out of it. Maybe I’ll have better luck next time......Bikin-Mike - Sept 2020

Hawks Nest Rail Trail

love this trail

August, 2020 by e.niles

Great trail for a walk, but too short to be much fun for bikes. The trail is in great condition and there’s a gorgeous water fall about half way with picnic benches would be a great place to have a little lunch. You can park at the lower entrance maintained by the city or take the tram down from hawks nest state park

Cranberry Tri-Rivers Rail Trail

Think twice

July, 2020 by donliss

Despite the lovely location, this trail should be considered unusable, or at least unbikable. Essentially all grass and not really passable. I hope it gets rebuilt. Perfect place.

Lewisburg and Ronceverte Trail (L&R Trail)

Good for a short stroll

July, 2020 by aarronward01

The trail isn’t completed, so right now it’s just a nice sidewalk in a quiet neighborhood. Once it extends I’m sure it’ll be awesome. If you’re looking for a short walk and some fresh air when you’re already in Lewisburg, it’s worth it.

Cranberry Tri-Rivers Rail Trail

Trail is not marked well, not maintained, overgrown to point it is almost unusable.

July, 2020 by image1studio

Trail is not marked well, not maintained, overgrown to point it is almost unusable. Went in late July 2020 but discovered the train is so overgrown it is useless. These trails should be maintained since there is little to do in this areal

Hawks Nest Rail Trail

Great short trail with beautiful views

May, 2020 by mkfarren

Trail is in great shape even after all the rain. Was pretty busy but not a problem at all. Gravel bikes to the bottom then took Hawks Nest Connector to Fayette Station road and back. Great ride, a lot of downed trees on Connector and a couple small slips, but passible if you don’t mind a little hike n bike. I thought Connector would be more rail trail but a lot of it is narrow and rocky single track. My gravel bike handled it OK but a mountain bike would’ve been better for that section.

Greenbrier River Trail

a bit disappointing

November, 2019 by jeree

My husband, sister and I rode the trail end to end and back this past summer. We are from Pittsburgh and have the Great Allegheny Passage trail that runs from pittsburgh to Cumberland Maryland, about 150 miles. So I am a bit spoiled having the best trail in the country, in my opinion, in my backyard. The Greenbrier River trail was disappointing. The trail surface was bad. It was basically two narrow tire tracks with grass in the middle taking up most of the trail. You can’t take your eyes off the trail to look at the scenery because of the trail surface being so narrow. There are almost no amenities on the trail, just the one town of Marlinton at mile marker 55, and a convenience store in the town of Seebert, but there are picnic tables and port-a-potties often along the trail. There are few choices of overnight accommodations. We started in Cass and stayed at the Bear Creek Lodge,It was close to the trail, nothing fancy and it had food on the first floor. Our next stop was in Seebert. We where lucky enough to find the Hillsboro House B&B, about two miles from the trail at Jack Hornes Cornes convenience store in Seebert. It was a great place to stay. But it is an uphill climb from the trail. I recommend not taking the road there, it was very busy with no berm, take Burnside rd. to Workmen rd. to Denmar rd. That takes you right to The Hillsboro House. At the end of the trail near Caldwell, we stayed at The Greenbrier River Cabin, it was beautiful and right at the end of the trail. There are just not a lot of amenities close, just a convenience store about a mile away, again on a very busy road with no berm. We had pizza delivered to the cabin. Due to the radio wave tower in the town of Green Bank, you probably will not have cell service on the trail. We had no service the entire trip until we got to Caldwell. We have done long distance bike trips (200 miles) every summer for the last 10 years in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, Missouri, and Michigan. This is a trail I would not recommend. Although the scenery in West Virginia is breathtaking ,the trail is remote and the trail surface was not good. Had the trail been in better condition I would rate this trail higher.

2 day bike and camp 9-28-19

October, 2019 by nathan.hendrick

We loved this trail. My family and friends are 100% amateur bike riders. We parked at the south end at Caldwell and shuttled up with Chuck at All Sports to Cass. We hit the trail at 830 am and biked 47.3 miles the first day. It took us until about 6 that evening to reach camp. But that was with lots of stops including the grocery store in Marlinton and water and ice cream at Jack Horner Corner in Seabert. Which is an awesome store with bike parts accessories rentals beer pizza food etc. super nice place.
We camped at a designated spot in hammocks. The bathrooms where nicer than expected. All the water wells had water that I recommend you use. The trail was clean and mowed recently. No over hanging brush or tall grass. There were lots of places to get in the river. The calls are well cared for and have fire pits. It even appeared that the forest guys leave the fallen trees cut into firewood blocks trail side. We finished up the remain miles on day two and ended around 3pm. It was me (36) my wife (40) my friend (39) and our kids. 14 13 and 12. The kids had a blast and let the pack both days.
I’m super impressed With this trail system and we plan to
Make this trip annually. I would suggest if your a amateur rider to do it in 3 days. So you can relax and enjoy camp
