The Greenbrier River Trail is a rail trail operated by West Virginia State Parks.[1] The trail is a 77-mile (124 km) long former railroad, now used for hiking, bicycling, ski-touring, horseback-riding, and wheel-chair use. The trail passes through numerous small towns and traverses 35 bridges and 2 tunnels as it winds its way along the valley. Most of the trail is adjacent to the free-flowing[2] Greenbrier River and is surrounded by peaks of the Allegheny Mountains.
