there's a couple inclines but nice variation of terrain and overall pleasant hike. I only ran into 5 people on the whole trail. no grand views or anything but its nice to be on a loop for convenience.

Trail was well marked with signs every 1/2 mile or so. The trail was quite empty on this fall day and the colors were beautiful!

This is an awesome park. There are several trails that connect along big red trail. Big red had quite an incline at one point, so I'd actually label this trail as MODERATE. dogs are welcome from October 1st - the beginning of May.

There are a number of trails in Greenbrier State Park to include the Big Red Trail - the longest trail in the park at 4.5 miles. The trail starts down along the lake and makes a nice long loop on the west side of the park. I would rate the trail as moderate with a couple of hills to transverse but nothing too difficult. If you want, you can park on Route 40 where the AT has a parking spot and hike south along the trail until you get to the Bartman's Hill Trail (on the right) which will take you down into the park for a total of 7.5 miles. See attached link for a good map of the trails.
