Really enjoyed the segment from Cass to Marlinton. The next day we hit a 5 mile stretch running south from Jack Horner's Corner where horses were riding. I don't imagine the equestrian folks realize how choppy they make the trail surface. In our area, there...More

While I have not run the entire trail we have walk a number of segments. The trail is either a groomed gravel path or paved. Being a old railroad grade there are no steep hills.....there are tunnels and bridges over creeks and the Greenbrier river.

Your Best option is to stay in Marlinton. Not a lot of options along the way. Cass is a nice place at the upper end of the trail. Not sure about hotels but they have a nice scenic railroad you can ride .
