Wonderful trail! Trail was well kept and smooth riding. Camp sites about every 10 miles or so, some with bathrooms/picnic tables/fire pit. Just know and prepare for no cell service 95% of the time. Enjoy your ride!

Great new trail

September, 2021 by cathiwells

We just stopped for a quick ride from Duck to Groves Creek to check out the trail on our way to Elkins. We loved what we experienced on this end of the trail! I can only imagine how gorgeous it will be in 3-4 weeks when the leaves change! We will be back to do a much longer ride! It’s a new trail so not much signage or amenities but I am sure that is planned in the future. Oh and lots of parking places at Duck and it’s a quick trip off of I-79!

Greenbrier River Trail

Amazingly Beautiful!

September, 2021 by utpaduke

Four of us drove from Raleigh NC to ride on 12-14 Sept 2021. On Sunday afternoon we rode Mile Marker 3 to MM15 out and back from Caldwell; this trail-head is very close to I64. We then drove 45 miles to Marlinton, and stayed at the Locust Hill B&B. This cabin is rustic with a Fantastic Porch and Awesome views for enjoying coffee and beer. The cabin is only 1/2 mile from trail! We rode out n back MM56 to MM36 toward Caldwell on Monday and out n back MM56 to MM68 toward Cass on Teus. Most of the time these trail sections followed the beautiful, clear Green Brier River! The trail was in GREAT Condition - no ruts, no rumble strips on this trail! Using Marlinton as our 2-night stay location allowed for convenient out n back riding without the use of a shuttle. Next time I plan to ride all the way down-river in one day! I plan to convert my 4-bike rack to a 3-bike rack for easier loading/unloading of bikes. One rider will begin with us, but only ride out for his desired distance and then back to the truck. He will then drive and pick us up at MM 3!

Question

September, 2021 by ourtaximom

Can someone tell me how far it is from Caldwell to Renick on the trail?

Elk River Trail (WV)

This is a great trail for anyone and everyone. It follows Elk River, it's peaceful, scenic, quiet, lots of wildlife to see and plants to identify.

Kaymoor Trail

It's Closed !

August, 2021 by tom.dougherty1958

The National Park Rangers told me in Aug 2021 that it is closed until further notice, at least a year. An old mine was not closed properly and filled with water and a landside was swept over the trail. There did not seem to be a parking lot from the north end, Wolf Creek end by the New River Gorge Bridge. No more than a gravel area for a few cars at the most. If there was no room to park your car you would have to exit on a one way loop road that would take 45 minutes to get back on the highway. They are working on it so maybe next year?

Greenbrier River Trail

A gem!

August, 2021 by mewhitfield_tl

Great ride. The wilderness was awesome and the trail was well maintained. Started at Cass and went south. A fellow rider had a flat that couldn't be fixed. Another trail rider gave him a lift back to Cass where our shuttle driver, Chuck, just happen to be! Thank God for small , no huge, blessings! Overall a good trail trip!

Rode bikes from Holcomb to Fenwick and back. Much if the trail is not maintained but is passable. Easy access to the Cherry River at numerous places. Some spots might have some good fishing. Would recommend it despite that it's not well maintained.

Lewisburg and Ronceverte Trail (L&R Trail)

incomplete
