This is an exceptionally scenic and easy ride along the West Fork of the Greenbrier River. The entire route is along an abandoned railgrade. As you ride through the steep-sided valley, you'll pass through woods, beside marshes and bogs, and over small trestles. You can turn around at any point or continue the full 22 miles to Glady. Highlights: Isolated, flat and smooth, views of river and mountains, wildlife, trestles.

Abeautiful ride in the hills where you are al alone and lots of wildlife to see. I found it flat and good surface most of the way a couple of gates at glady where I started and rode 15 miles before turning around. I stooped to fish in the river and had a couple of small trout on. rode the road some of the way back and had many hills to pump up and cruise down. no traffic at all.
