Due to the historic flooding on June 23rd, some of the Greenbrier River Trail remains closed.
There is a large washout near the trail head at Caldwell so temporary parking is available at mile 3.5 near Camp Alleghany. The trail was repaired and is currently open from mile 3.5 to mile 6.8. The trail remains closed between mile 6.8 and milepost 13, this section is hazardous and impassable. Currently everything north of milepost 13 to the town of Cass is open and in good condition.
The Greenbrier River Trail is a 78-mile long rail trail operated by West Virginia State Park system. Trail uses include bicycling, backpacking, cross-country skiing and horseback riding. A packed, crusher run surface coupled with a mere one per cent grade creates an ease of riding that allows cyclists, young and old, to enjoy the many breathe-taking views. The trail closely mirrors its namesake, the Greenbrier River, for most of its length offering trail users countless opportunities for swimming and fishing.
The Greenbrier River Trail traverses one of the most remote areas in the state and lies adjacent to the Monongahela National Forest, Seneca State Forest and Watoga State Park. A trip along the trail is truly a “Wild and Wonderful” experience.
Trail users are encouraged to wear blaze orange or brightly colored outerwear during hunting seasons in West Virginia.
