A nice hike! The schoolhouse, the cemetery, and the house are all very nice! We got a bit lost at first. If you park at the picnic area you will need to walk across the bridge to access the trail. It’s a fun hike.

Nice easy trail. Kinda steep hill at start but worth it.

Great acclamation hike with lots of variety- along the stream to start, wide foliage path to the Walker House, and we tagged on some trail above the Walker House to get in the trees. The sites (school, cemetery, and house) are great stopping points. There is a porta-potty at the school.

Loved this hike more than I thought I would! We accessed the trail from the large parking area, but had to ask someone how to get to the trailhead. Our youngest hiker was 4 and oldest was 70. Both were able to manage. The hike up is definitely and incline. We read up on the Walker sisters before the hike, and it made experiencing the history so much cooler. The schoolhouse and sisters’ house were so much fun to see and experience. Definitely recommend this hike!

Took my 3 kids on a little day trip and we all loved this hike. We parked at the Greenbriar school and hiked the 2 mile round trip to the cabin. It was perfect for my four year old.. Such a great way to talk to them about history and how people Used to live!

Loved this trail! It is mainly gravel with a slight incline but it was peaceful with lots of pretty scenery. I was surprised how good the school and cabin still looked.

Awesome family trail. Remember to take chalk if stopping by The Little Greenbrier School House so kids can leave a message on the chalkboard!

Started at small parking lot at the beginning of the gravel road. Fun hike. Pretty area. The hike is all on an old road mostly gravel. Steady uphill hike to the cabin.
