I bike with a friend and together we have 5 kids 8-16yo. This is one of our favorites at Beech Fork. Lots of variety from easy to moderate.

Trail was very enjoyable but we only saw two blazes the entire time. It was easy to get off trail, I believe I would’ve gotten lost if it weren’t for All Trails.... also, the shelter is badly in need of some love

Very pretty area, good for a quick hike. Raven’s Rock was my favorite trail (That’s where everyone gets those cool pictures)

It’s a hard climb full of switchbacks to the top. The top is a huge rock overlooking the park (not that great of a view) then you ride down a steep section back the the switchbacks and just ride them down

Nice hike trails are well marked

It's an ok trail with some good views of the river. one can enjoy a picnic, but going up the hill is no joy. the trail ends at one point, but we tried to go further to check the cliff which one person had posted, but we gave up after about 20 min of walk. there is hardly any visible trail and thick vegetation makes it hard.

horseback riding

we love horseback riding on the Greenbrier River Trail! Theres a great place to camp with your horses at EJs Campsites. lots of great trails. we like to go and spend a week and never get bored!

Not walkable. Too much trash.

I really enjoyed this trail but my God we’re the spiders bad yesterday! About every ten feet was a new web waiting to smack me in the face.

I found myself a nice big rock to lay on with an amazing view about a mile and a half in, but be careful if you decide to go to the rocks as I saw a rather large copperhead (picture posted) between some of the rocks. Next time I will have to hike with my fishing pole as there was plenty of fishing access points along the length of the trail.

On the final incline the trail became a real battle as most people don’t seem to go that far up. Which is a shame because it is very beautiful up there. There were a few large downed trees, and the trail was mostly overgrown at this point and became hard to follow and the spiders became progressively worse.

On the way out the spiders wasted no time in yet again conveniently placing their webs in my face.

I will do this trail again in the fall as I feel it would be the best time to get some of the views offered by this trail with the leaves not obstructing some of the scenery.

I did not hear any growling, but I do believe I found a few bear prints on the trail (picture posted).

Rode 26 miles of the trail over the weekend and have to say it was probably the worst trail that I have ridden.

We road from the northern trail head in Cass on Saturday, and then headed south from Marlinton on Sunday. There was one location of less than a quarter mile where it seemed to have been maintained - more for hiking than for biking as it was a combination of so much gravel that it was like biking on sand then in the same stretch there were large stones better for keeping a pickup from sinking than for biking.

Much of the trail was a pair of tire grooves spaced about the width of a pickup truck, with weeds growing in between. There was little evidence that trail - the riding surface - had been maintained in a few years. In a couple of areas the trail was barely visible through the freshly mowed lawns.

And, it's a state park? So, are we to assume that there is an annual maintenance budget??

Maybe the sections of the trail further south are better for biking.

Great workout, especially that first few miles. Went in late July, everything (including the view points) was extremely overgrown. A fallen tree around mile 2.0 has the trail completely blocked, but if you stick to the trail that beers off just before this you will eventually meet up again. Be sure to have as much bare skin covered as possible!

Great hike. Definitely watch for rattlesnakes in the open part of the clay run trail

Not a bad hike and I’m extremely out of shape. Took my time with my 9yr old daughter. If your going just for the “look out” don’t. It isn’t impressive at all. But a nice trail that’s well maintained and clearly marked!

Very easy trail, nice and wide. Good for bringing your family on. Some cool bridges and rock scenery.

Went on the hike yesterday morning, and the temperature was perfect. We took the North Mont Chateau trail and veered off into some other trails, and at the end clocked in at about 11.5 miles (with 175 floors climbed)! The hike is marked well and has some great views. Walking in between some of the massive rocks, seeing the Iron Furnace and seeing the mini-beach at Cheat Lake were some of the biggest highlights. The overlook of Coopers Rock is amazing but was extremely crowded. If you come during early morning, you may have a better experience. Overall great hike, definitely worth the 5 hours for me. Check out some of my photos. Sitting down afterwards was great haha

Easy walk

Enjoyed a brisk 6 mike hike early morning on June 22, 2018 from Stony Bottom to Cass.

I had a day off and decided to hike this trail, since all the reviews said the trail was marked and easily followed I knew it would be a great hike. Unfortunately, it's not marked all that great and I ended up taking wrong turn that resulted in 1.5 miles out and back to get back onto the trail turning my 5 mile hike into 8.
I used the app the rest of the trail until i happened upon the end of it which wasn't well marked at all and eventually I just followed the road. Everything was beautiful, and had this been at my peak fitness a couple years ago I wouldn't have felt like I was going to die. I'd recommend using the app to guide you if you're going to follow this trail as it is actually a loop around several connecting trails. If you do that, you'll likely have a much better experience than I. Happy Trails!

Great trail and would rate as easy. Would like to go back and bike the trail. We did about 6 miles and then turned back. Great scenery and wild life . We saw 3 deer one of the does had a fawn. My wife almost stepped on a copperhead that was crossing the trail. It was a small one and looked like it just had killed a mouse and was on his way to eat the catch. Would highly recommend the trail.

Nice wide trail making hiking with pets a breeze! Pretty view following the river!

Trail starts great down through huge boulders. Declines down into a valley with a beautiful creek and the clay furnace. The second half of the trail is pretty open without a lot of great scenery.

i haven't been to this trail in many years, me and my family did this trail in 3 days total on bike, i would recommend to bring enough supplies with you for this, also no cell service from what i remember. its a great adventure but be prepared..

on Stone Cliff Trail

hiking

We went on a whim along this trail with our dog. It’s a very interesting walk down then back up to about 300 ft around a bend in the river. There were several nice waterfalls/streams to cross by stepping on rocks, the waterfalls trickle down from way up on the hill. We went further than the posted trail, around the bend looking for what might be a “stone cliff”, but we only found large boulders that had fallen down on to the trail. Another person mentioned a growel from the woods, we also heard it too past where the trail was supposed to end. We guessed it to be a large wildcat of some kind, but we did not see it. We decided to turn around and go back shortly after the noise. We then get on here to post a review and read another person’s post with a similar story. We recommend not going alone if you’re going to past the lower trail and up the final incline.

Hiked the entire trail in three days. Cass to Marlinton, Marlinton to Rorer, Rorer to Caldwell. Tracked over 80 miles with GPS. Picked up a few geocaches along the way. Very nice trail, would do it again!
