On Monday July 25th there was a meeting about Trail restoration from the recent flood.

Here is an article from the Register-Herald about that meeting.

In light of the recent flooding, below are the most recent statements from the Trail Superintendent.

From July 13, 2016

It has been a busy week along the GRT and frankly I had hoped to give you an update before now. First, the Greenbrier River Trail will absolutley be repaired and soon this dismal chapter will be hehind us. We appreciate the many offers of assistance and we hope to have some type of volunteer project in the near future. If any repair is made to the GRT without the State Historic Preservation Office approval or not to FEMA standards state parks will not be reimbursed any funding. So it is important that we proceed appropriately. The city of Lewisburg has agreed to evaulate the first wash out above the Caldwell parking lot on the trail and will make the repair if it is within their abilities. The GRT crew will cover the exposed pipe just above mm 4 and move north to the large washout around mm 4.4 to see if any temporary fix can be made there.
Thanks

From July 4, 2016,

GRT staff made temporary repairs to the washout near mm17 today. The trail is now open from Anthony to Cass. Many areas still have rocks and flood debris on the treadway so please use caution while biking and be patient as crews continue to improve the trail surface. We are currently working on a plan to repair the major damages between Caldwell and Anthony and will do everything possible to make those repairs sooner than later.

Thanks for your offers of help and concerns for the GRT.

From June 28, 2016

The GRT crew has not yet assessed the entire trail for damages. The southern section, below Renick, sustained tremendous water damage from tributaries and mud slides which makes it very difficult to access much of the lower trail. The upper portion of trail from Cass to Renick is cleared of debris and is generally safe for riding. This does not mean it is in prestorm condition so be cautious and carry tire repair kits. It will likely be months before things are back to normal on the Greenbrier River Trail.
Please share and pass the word.

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!
