The GRT from mile marker 3.5 to mile marker 7 is open. The southern terminus of the trail to mile marker 3.5 remains closed due to recent flooding and major washout conditions. Temporary parking is at mile marker 3.5. The trail remains closed from Anthony to mile marker 7 due to a major rock slide totally blocking the trail, also a consequence of recent flooding in WV. The trail is open from Milemarker 7 to Milemarker 80. 'Friends of the Greenbrier River Trail' maintain a Facebook page and post conditions as possible.
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.
