A letter from our president:

We  wanted to let you know that we are hopeful that repairs from Anthony south will be starting soon. Last Thursday (April 27) trail managers and engineers will meet with contractors in a pre-bid meeting. We understand that FEMA money is in place, so hoping that work will begin soon.

A new face on the trail will be Josh Feather, assistant to Jody. We can reach him at Watoga.State Park 304-799-3954.

Our Reconstruction Fund has almost $10,000 in it for trail repairs in the flooded areas, and our volunteers are still on the case. We are looking forward to doing all we can to augment any funds needed to get the trail back in prime condition!

Thanks for your support

Sincerely,
Leslee McCarty
President, Greenbrier River Trail Association

The southern terminus of the trail, MP1 – MP3.5, remains closed due to recent flooding and major washout conditions. Temporary parking is at MP3.5.

The GRT is still closed from the wash out near MP7 to the big slide just south of Anthony MP13. This closed section of trail is very dangerous and travel is not recommended. The slide at MP13 is not stable and is impassable. Anyone wishing to use the trail at Caldwell is asked NOT to use the traditional parking lot.  Please travel north to Camp Alleghany Road and park on the left at the very end, past the green shed.

The Great Greenbrier River Race

201 was the 31st annual Great Greenbrier River Race. The race is held the last Saturday in April each year in Marlinton, WV. With great prizes, live music and good food,the event attracts a loyal following of racers and fans.

Originally a team event with four members, canoeists, bicyclist and runner, the race has now attracted many people who do it solo. But there is still room for the whole family or the family dog on a team! Kayaks and canoes are both encouraged and the many categories encourage prizes for many racers.

The Greenbrier River Trail

Eighty miles may seem like a long way, but the miles just fly by when you are immersed in nature as only the Greenbrier River Trail can bring it to you. We are glad you stopped by to get more information about the trail, or to get race results from our big fundraiser. We have been called West Virginia’s premier rail to trail conversion and we hope you will visit the trail soon and see why.
