From its source the Greenbrier winds its way for 150 miles through some of the most beautiful and productive land in the state to meet the New River in Hinton. It begins high in the mountains at the “Birthplace of Rivers,” a region that also gives rise to the Tygart, Cheat, and Potomac Rivers. The West Fork of the Greenbrier is an extremely popular, tiny trout stream beginning very near the source of Glady Fork of the Cheat. The Greenbrier and Shavers Fork parallel each other, but the former flows southwest in the valley while the latter flows northeast on top of the mountain. The East Fork is also a very small trout stream that drains the western slopes of Spruce Knob.
