Wonderful bike trail that is an old rail line along the Greenbrier river. I only wish we had more time to go further long the trail. We will definitely come back to ride it again.

There are hand pumps supplying drinking water along the way (see the latest GRT map for locations) as well as springs, streams and the river that one could filter and drink.

Paved portion is in the middle both north and south from Marlinton. The start of the trail is on Sonehouse Road in Caldwell.

Are you able to camp along the trail?

Rebecca Edwards | Nov 24, 2020

Yes, there are several camping sites along the trail that have tent pads, a few with shelters. Also some have water pumps and latrines.

I the trail pretty flat, is there a gradual or steep inclines?

It is flat. There is one small mound at mile marker 13 where the side of a cliff fell on the trail and the trail was rebuilt over the rock slide. Otherwise it is flat.

What is the most scenic 10-15 mile stretch of trail ?

Michael Angelo | Nov 23, 2020
Rebecca Edwards | Nov 24, 2020

You can't go wrong. The first 15 miles is lovely but more crowded. A quiet, beautiful part is from Buckeye to Sebert.

Any issues with trail closure? Heard parts were closed due to flooding but can't find anything. Planning October trip. Thanks.

The GRT has been totally open for two years. Unfortunately, old articles about the June 2016 washouts keep showing up in places. Enjoy your trip.
