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!

We took this hike on 8/8/17 it USA 1 mile hike but it seems to have a steep incline. We took our 2 grand daughters ages 9 and 5 they enjoyed the hike and the history.
