Located in the southeastern corner of the state near the border of Virginia, Greenbrier State Forest provides over 5,100 acres of heavily forested, mountainous terrain for outdoor recreation. Magnificent views of the surrounding countryside are afforded by the impressive and imposing 3,280 high Kate's Mountain.

This trail is in the Greenbrier State Forest and can be used as part of Kate's Mountain Loop. You travel essentially straight up the side of Kate's Mountain but neither myself nor my dog had too much trouble.

This was a tough hike (lots of steep downhill coming down) but my dog and I enjoyed it. I couldn't find either of the marked overlooks (heard they were overgrown) and the trail on the back side of the mountain doesn't have a sign like the others so I wasn't sure about the enterance for a while.
