I am confused about the post from pfh24 that said it was the worst trail he had ridden. I found the trail in good condition all the way. Of course, there were some muddy spots as it has rained a lot this year and the week I was there, there is new gravel in places which one would expect on a trail this long, and the grass needed mowing in a few places but the middle of the trail was always fairly short grass and most of the grass on the trail on both sides was fine.
There has been a lot of rain so grass grows fast in that situation. I started in Lewisburg and rode up approximately 15 to 20 miles one way, turned around and rode back to my car. I like to ride trails both ways because it is like riding two trails as you see it differently in opposite directions. The trail follows the beautiful and crystal clear river most of the way and you pass pretty farms along the way.
It was not near as remote as I expected as there are many homes, mostly weekend and vacation homes along the river in a number of places and there are people living at the trailheads so you do not feel isolated which is good and bad. It was a wonderful week and I plan to do it again next year. The Seebert trailhead is a nice one as you can take the bridge across the river and Watoga State Park is directly across the bridge and they have cabins, swimming pool , trails, tennis, etc.
I plan to stay there next time instead of 3 nights in Lewisburg and two in Marlinton. I definitely recommend this trail and will definitely go back again if possible.
There are places where it is more safe for stability to have the wider tires. The Old Clark is an old small hotel and is clean and breakfast was good. It is old though but I found it fine and the folks were very nice there. Rode 26 miles of the trail over the weekend and have to say it was probably the worst trail that I have ridden. We rode from the northern trailhead 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. There were areas where the tire tracks were without gravel and which had become mud for a biker to navigate. 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. This trail is actually 80 miles. I'm not sure why it says 77, but my family started at mile marker 80 this July.
We road down to mile 75 and back. This part of the trail starts at Cass and has a slight downgrade. It's crushed stone, but the trail is kept up nicely. It also follows the river. Our goal is to keep going back and doing it in sections each year.
We started at Marlinton milepost 56 and headed north. Found that perfect campsite at milepost Toilets, water, shelter, near the river. We ended up staying 2 days! The second day we rode to Cass for lunch and see the trains. We stopped near milepost 74 to read, swim, enjoy the day. Today I rode from Cass to Seebert, and back. The trail is well kept, with few ruts and no downfall blocking my path;.
Most important, the trail was smooth enough I wasn't jostled and could maintain a steady pace. Near Marlinton, there is a section of asphalt, some of which is being buckled by roots growing underneath.
Noticeable, but far from dangerous and un-fun as is sections of the Erie Canal Towpath trail. I ran across a state maintenance worker who was driving it. He stopped, was friendly and we had a short, nice conversation. My wife and I rode this trail on June 25, We started in Marlinton and rode north for about 10 miles before turning back. What we liked about the trail: Beautiful scenery Lots of wildlife.
Deer, rabbits, groundhogs Ample shade Sharp's Tunnel is impressively creepy to ride through What we didn't like: The trail is becoming overgrown. In many places, it looked like a rutted country road, with weeds growing in the middle and encroaching on the narrow path. There was only about 16 inches per path. There was a fallen tree across the trail near the tunnel.
You had to get off your bike to squeeze under. It looked as if maintenance is seldom done on the trail. It could use a good mowing and new layer of crushed grave. My son and I rode this trail over 5 days in July from Caldwell to Cass. He was 9 at the time. We packed most everything on my bike and camped when we were tired, dished when we felt like it and took side trips along the way to Watoga SP and Marlonton.
We ultimately rode over miles an made memories to last a lifetime. We got to see deer, bear and one rattlesnake lying on the trail so please remember: I rode much of the trail round trip over Labor Day weekend. I rode from Marlinton to Cass and back, and Marlinton south about 32 miles and back the following day. The trail was in very good shape, with great campsites along the way--one of the most beautiful routes I have ridden. I stayed north of the extensive damage from the June floods which will take a lot of money and time to repair, but you can still experience the large majority of the trail.
I biked out and back on the north section from Marlington to Cass. The scenery was amazing. The trail surface was good for most of this section, there were some areas that were torn up pretty bad from horse use though.
I'd have given this trail 5 stars if not for the horse damage. On June 23, , the Greenbrier River Trail was hit by torrential rains resulting in multiple washouts and landslides affecting most severely the Southernmost 10 miles of the Trail, from Caldwell to Anthony. From the old trailhead parking lot, exit to your left and go about.
Take that road approximately. Repair work on the Trail is ongoing. At the present time, the Southern end of the Trail is open for about 3 miles from the new parking area to another large washed out area.
If you would like to access the other beautiful 67 miles of the Trail that are still open, exit the old trailhead parking lot at Caldwell to your left and go about 5 miles up Stonehouse Road, which becomes Brush Road, until you come to a traffic light at the intersection of Brush Road and Rt. The Elks Country Club and golf course will be on your left, the State Road garage on your right, and there will be a bank directly across the intersection.
Turn right at the light and head North on Rt. As you approach Anthony Road, you will pass an Exxon station and then a cemetary on your right. Parking is on your left and you will want to head in that direction North to access the remaining 67 miles of the Trail.
The very scenic drive to Anthony from Caldwell takes about minutes and will be well worth the extra time and effort to enjoy the 67 miles of Trail and River to the North. All of the other Trail access points indicated on the Trail map, are open.
I am fortunate to live near the Trail and ride it every day. You will not be disappointed! If you want to see for yourself the immensity of the damage to the southern part of the Trail, you can head South on the Trail from Anthony MM Private donations, both large and small, are badly needed to make the necessary repairs to the Trail.
We rode the trail October , starting in Marlinton, down to Lewisburg on day one, then back to Marlinton on day two. Day three we rode up to Cass and back. The remoteness of the trail, the history of the logging and railroad industries, and the natural beauty of the area make this a must see.
But the camping facilities looked very clean and well kept. Staying at the Old Clark Inn was wonderful, the bikes were secured, breakfast was enough to get you going out on the trail, beds were fine and wifi was great.
If you plan to drink a lot of the water from the wells its a good idea to bring some mixes to counteract the pumps. Phone service is non existent on most of the trail, especially on the Northern end. Placing the phone on airplane mode and making it only a camera seemed to be a good idea. I would recommend setting enough time aside to take some time to go down to the actual river and take a dip, even though it was very cold the water is clear and clean looking.
The trail generally is feet above the river so keep an eye for trails that others have blazed to get down and see the river close up. Being bike riders for 20 plus years we had the Greenbrier on our bucket list to do. Well this year October we got our chance. First of all we had to plan our lodging, we were not going to camp because the weather called for some freezing nights and we were not up for that. I converted a child burley cub trailer into a cargo trailer.
It worked great but caution due not over pack as we did. Oct We drove up to Caldwell Thursday evening.
Chuck from adventure sports based out of Marlinton shuttle us up to Cass WV. We got to Cass at We found our company house and got settled. The house was nice and we slept good. OctFriday Weather Sunny 74 degrees Woke up and checked out and went to go eat at the restaurant for breakfast, very good pancakes!! After breakfast we found the trail head and started the ride.
The colors were past peak but still beautiful. We stopped in Clover Lick and talked to some other riders and rest. Before long we came upon a group or gaggle of wild turkeys and they scattered every which way.
This part of the trail is the most remote compared to the other parts. Once we got to Sharps Tunnel very creepy and went thru took some pictures and carried on. Our initial plan was to stop every 10 miles or so and rest and take it all in, but we had a faster than average pace the first day, Excitement maybe. Well we made our way into Marlinton and stayed at the Old Clark Inn the Inn keepers are nice and the rooms are small but beds are nice.
We went for dinner at Green Briar river restaurant, it was all good. We slept good that night. Had Buck-Wheat pancakes and southwestern eggs, wife had everything bagel and we shared the pancakes. We headed south our longest day 31 miles. We planned to take a more leasurely pace this day and keep to our 10 mile stop interval. The weather was cooler and we felt better and cycled better. We stopped at Watgua Bridge and took great pictures. I plan was to stop in Seebert and Jack Honer's for lunch, but when we got there we were still full from breakfast.
So we had them make sandwiches for the road. Talked to a gentleman that saw 2 bald eagles down the trail so we looked for them. Wife took the trailer on her bike for 5 miles to give me some rest. We looked for the eagles but never saw them. Along the way a forest ranger came by in a truck and was looking for some horseback riders and inquired if we have seen them. And he too mention he saw the 2 eagles near we stopped to eat our lunch.
Got to the cottage and Twyla and Glen the Inn keepers bought us some groceries that we requested Soup and Sandwiches we were too tired to cook anything else.
The house is nice but pricy so share it with another couple. It was Saturday and it would have been nice to have a TV to watch some football. Oct Sunday Weather overcast and maybe rain. We cook breakfast had bacon and eggs and made peanut butter sandwiches for the road. Since it was supposed to rain and cooler we dressed in our long bike pants. This part of the trail had the best colors and we stopped more often and really enjoyed ourselves.
I had my Gopro camera and took some really good video. I will post it on when I get it together. This part of the trail saw many people walking their dogs and just day hiking. It was Sunday after all. At the 2 miles to go we rode together and made to the parking area. We were glad to see the truck was still there, along with 10 other cars and trucks.
We got all packed up and headed for our final lodging this time driving. Greenbrier Campground in Alderson WV. We got lost getting there but finally made it. Thank goodness the hot tub was behind a privacy fence HA HA. I would recommend this place was a nice place to stay after 80 miles of bike riding.
October Monday Drove home in rain. We had a great time and I would do it again anytime. I recommend a slower pace next time. Michael and Lee Murdock Knoxville, Tennesee. We spent 4 days biking the trail and averaged 20 miles a day. We had two vehicles so we were able to set up a shuttle.
This worked out well and we were able to cover more of the trail without having to back track. We camped at Watoga State Park. That was a really nice park too. I was very impressed by the number of campsites along the trail and a lot of them had shelters along with a bathroom, water pump, picnic table and fire ring. I would like to come back again and try camping along the trail and also kayaking the river.
We didn't see many people on the trail. We enjoyed a delicious lunch in Marlinton. It was easy pedaling with wonderful scenery. I highly recommend this trail to all ages. Rode about 10 rail-trails in a 2 week stretch and this was definitely my favorite.
Camping facilities along the trail were excellent, as was scenery. Trail surface was uniformly superb. The guide maps were accurate and complete. Plan to return some day. This is the finest rail trail in West Virginia I enjoyed the tent spots that include water and bathroom service. There is a delicious pizza joint along the way.
My friends and I felt safe the entire 3 day expedition.. We stayed in Marlinton, WV, about two-thirds of the way up the trail, and rode the entire trail in out-and-back segments over a weekend. The Greenbrier is a great option if you like touring away from vehicles in scenic areas, and it comprises a portion of Adventure Cycling Assoc. The trail surface was almost entirely crushed gravel and very well maintained. You are riding in sight of the river much of the time and pass through two short tunnels that get totally dark as they curve.
A tourist railroad line still operates out of Cass at the north end. There are numerous campsites and picnic areas along the trail, but few towns directly on the trail where you can get food or lodging -- namely Cass at mile point 80, Marlinton at MP 56, and Caldwell at MP 3. We both rode touring bikes with Clement LAS 33 cross tires, fenders and rack bags.
The tires were perfect for the trail conditions, as the gravel was rather loose in spots, and the fenders were nice when we got caught in a heavy downpour that fortunately lasted only about 15 minutes. We carried lunches with us on two days because there were no places to eat along those segments of the trail.
I highly recommend the Greenbrier trail for anyone looking for a short tour in the Eastern US. My husband, daughter, and I set out on our very first camping trip along a rails to trail. We left our truck in Marlinton and traveled north to the primitive campsites near Clover Lick. The trail was in good condition. Some spots were soft and made it a little difficult to pedal through, but we managed. I'm sure as things dry out it will improve. The trail was very busy on the section we rode. We passed joggers, bikers, hikers, and fisherman.
The bathrooms were amazingly clean and well-cared for. Some hand sanitizer would have been a nice addition, but I brought some on my bike and was good. The water pumps were great to have, although we didn't end up drinking the water.
It had a very strong metallic taste. We had a water purification system, so we drank from the river The campsites were all in great condition. The first one we came upon was just miles from town. The river was nearby but not within sight. We decided to head to the next campsites near Clover Lick. I'm glad we did because they were fantastic. They were much more spread out, the river was right there, and they sat back from trail a bit. The beauty of the area was unreal. We saw a snake, deer, geese, various colorful birds, and chipmunks.
A covered picnic table just north of Sharp's Tunnel sits right by a beautiful waterfall. We enjoyed eating some lunch and listening to the running water. It was so relaxing. There was so much to look at and take in. There were several times that we would run off the trail a bit because we were so busy looking around at the scenery. From the helpful and friendly volunteer at the Visitor's Center to the wonderful trail accommodations to the scrumptious meal at DirtBean on our return to Marlinton.
We have just one regret They always say to save the best for last. We didn't and I think we will always compare every bike camping experience to this one. I can't imagine that any trail could compare! Not sure if this is the right place to ask questions, but I don't see any other place, so here goes. First, I want to hike this trail next month, but I don't see enough information to tell me if I can access the river to filter water rather than needing to carry an excessive amount some riverbanks are too steep, for example.
Second, I see references to food resources at various stops, but not enough information to tell me what to carry. Is the avaible food canned soup, for example useless to a backpacker.
Finally for now , will the campsites accommodate a hammock camper? My daughter and I backpacked the entire length of the trail starting at Cass starting August 31, We got into Cass late the first night and only hiked 2 miles to the first campsite and stayed overnight. We covered an average of 13 miles per day until we arrived at Caldwell. Very picturesque and interesting scenery along the way. One day about the middle of the trail we never passed a single person.
There were several other people we passed who were hiking the entire trail also. Most people we passed had seen a bear sometime, but we never did. We hung our food in bags in trees at night and nothing ever bothered it.
It had been a dry summer and almost all the springs and creeks were dried up, so we drank from the wells when we found them and also treated and drank from the Greenbrier river a lot as well. That water tasted a lot better than the well water! The river was crystal clear and at least a foot and a half below normal, so it was easy to get to. The adirondack shelters 4 are nice to have on rainy nights. We got wet a couple times while backpacking, but enjoyed the trip anyway.
At Seebert at the Jack Horner's store you can get just about anything you need, even pizza and ice cream. They also sell a book written by a local countian about the trail, with in depth information about every stop along the way, in its heyday in the early 's. I suggest you buy this book in advance of hiking or biking the trail, as it will tell you what there is to look for and where amenities are at along the way.
There are several shuttle services you can use to get from point to point, but they are expensive. You can get a list of available shuttles from the WV state Park website, under the listing for the Greenbrier River Trail. I would suggest taking two cars, leaving one at the desired exit and then drive back to your stating point with the other one. I highly recommend hiking or biking this trail. We drove down from New York and cycled this trail from Clover Lick to Droop over the summer with our children--ages 4, 6 and 9 and a Burley bike trailer.
The ride was stunning and the area was interesting. We conveniently bumped into a local music festival in Elkins on our way down from New York. The trail was an incredibly easy trail to ride. It was well maintained and very flat, with a slight downward incline--if you started the trail backwards. For us, starting backwards meant starting at Clover Lick and going towards Droop.
Our 6 and 9 year olds had no trouble at all on the trail; our 4 year old, who only learned to ride a two-wheeler this summer, covered 10 miles in total during our time on the trail. The local people were generally friendly and engaging. One couple that we met let us taste some of their local moonshine!
While actually riding on the trail, we encountered very few people maybe 5 over the course of our time on the trail. It is worth noting that there is no cell phone service on much of the trail and in parts of Pocahontas County because of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. The phone situation proved to be a non-issue for us.
We didn't break down or anything. The main challenge that we encountered was having to park the car ride and then ride back to the car. There are no cabs anywhere in the area and I mean anywhere! I looked pretty extensively before we left for the trip. Basically, this meant that we covered less ground when we rode.
For example, four miles was eight miles round trip. On two of our days on the trail we arranged for a local shopkeeper to help us out for a small fee. On these days, my husband dropped the kids and I with the bikes and he met the shopkeeper at the access point that we were planning to cycle to. The shopkeeper basically fulfilled the role of the taxi driver that I sought before we left New York; he drove my husband back to the access point where we were waiting.
The stretch from Seebert to Droop seemed longer than we thought it would be. The 6 and 9 year old were beat! The dessert at Pretty Penny Cafe in Hillsboro was well-earned! Our 4 year old only cycled about two miles or so before going on a bike seat on the back of my bike.
We put his bike in our Burley. We opted to stay in cabins in state parks Seneca and Watoga while doing the trail. And yes, we saw a bear while Watoga twice. This is a really fascinating part of the country. We had an awesome time! We used Appalachian Sport for our bike rentals and shuttle from Marlinton to Cass for a ride down the trail in mid-September. The trail is wonderful, almost entirely along the river for the northern section, an easy ride along smooth surfaces with plenty of places to stop and rest or eat.
Can't say enough about Chuck at Appalachian Sport- a great deal on the bikes and shuttle and two perfect rooms above the shop at an affordable rate. Rooms were clean, well furnished, and maintained.
Chuck was knowledgeable, flexible, and just a good guy to get us started. We would use his services again and highly recommend that you do so, too! After waiting out the rain all day, my labradoodle, Hollie, and I hit the trail around 5: We were both thrilled to get out of the vehicle and into the woods. Hollie uses the Springer, dog walking tether, that attaches to my bike.
It was the perfect apparatus for a trail like the Greenbrier. She and I moved along nicely, covering just over 10 miles in our short amount of daylight. The only discouragement we had was with the limited access points to the river itself. The two places we could access, between 4. We saw and heard plenty of wildlife with a large bear probably pounds crossing the path in front of us around the 7.
Deer were plentiful, saw numerous bird species, with Pilated Woodpeckers calling throughout the entire trail covered. I heard numerous Ravens and a couple Barred Owls. A great Blue Heron landed before dark and a group of geese were noise from the river. We had to cover nearly 2 miles in the pitch dark and a rabbit ran in front the bike giving me a quick jolt as we were about to call it a night. Great trail with beautiful scenery throughout.
I can't wait to return for more. Just finished the full round trip from Caldwell to Cass. This trail is great. The trail is not very crowed and had clean campsites and restrooms long the way. Great view and interesting sites.
The grade from Caldwell to Cass maybe railroad grade but it's a constant climb and your legs do feel it. Path is well maintained. I hadn't attempted a hike of this length, and learned a lot from this trip. Unfortunately, I was carrying too much weight in my pack, and had to quit before I completed the entire length due to a stress fracture in my left tibia.
The campsites were clean and easily accessible. There are some truly beautiful places on this trail, to include great fishing if that's what you're into doing. I also ran into some very nice folks on my trip, to include a "wagon train" on my second day. Would love to run into them again this year, as they fed me VERY well!! Am hiking again during the same time frame this year, and am anxiously looking forward to it.
Rode the trail yesterday 25 miles up from Caldwell and back. Planned on refilling my water bottles in Renick, but found that there was no water available.
The drinking fountain in the park wasn't working, and the spigot nearby was locked. So, for now, plan accordingly when planning your ride On the plus side, however, the trail was in excellent shape overall with only a couple of minor inconveniences due to downed trees.
This was my second time riding GRT. Rode in mid April. The trail was perfect. Not one piece of trash the entire 78 miles!! It's so nice that everyone respects this beautiful trail and does their part to keep it perfect!! I highly recommend everyone ride at least a portion of this trail. It's natural beauty will rival any trail in the country. Can't wait to ride it again!!! Six years after staying at Seebert, we returned but this time to Marlinton, on the hope to cover more of the trail.
Road 15 miles north to Clover Lick The next day we drove to Cadwell, and road 14 miles and back again. This is a great trail, clean as a whistle, nice bridges and tunnels. Saw several groups of deer. April temperatures 32 in morning, but by afternoon. We bundled but fount it totally comfortable if you layer. Bathrooms and water, along with camp sites make this trail a winner. We too were surprised that so few people used the trail. Check out videos on YouTube I walked this up and back, starting and ending at Caldwell over a 6 day stretch in late July Most of this trail is very quiet, only Caldwell, Cass and Marlinton areas having many other people on the trail.
Most crowded was on weekends as usual , but I managed on a Thursday to go from Cass to campsite below Marlinton and only met two other people! Spent one night at Cass, otherwise 'roughed' it. The river views, the tunnels and bridges plus the scenery all worth every step. If you want solitude and a great walking view, highly recommend mid week travel on this trail. Just finished my 3rd annual bicycle trip on the GRT.
The scenery is beautiful and the entire trail is so peaceful. Can't understand why there are so few riders? Oh well, perhaps it's better that way My buddy and I discussed riding GRT for the last 6 months. On July 5th we did it! We began at the Caldwell end at 7 a.
We brought some energy bars, bananas, gatorade, and water. There are fresh water pumps periodically along the trail. We stopped in Seebert for lunch. This was at approximately mile marker The Greenbrier River winds peacefully in view of the trail almost the entire way.
The trail is in excellent shape and other than the 15 mile monsoon we rode through, we had no problems riding this trail in one day. We arrived in Cass at about 4: Tired but proud of our accomplishment!! We will definitely come back and ride this trail again soon! It was a central point from which we could access both the northern and southern parts of the trail. We used the two-car method and swapped keys at the mid point of each day's journey.
The experience was both varied and fascinating. Like most rail trails it offerd no elevation challenges. We travelled through tunnels as well as many friendly small towns.
Access was not a problem, but water stop and meal planning was a bit problematic. The scenery in the fall was spectacular. Overall the experience was fabulous. If you make this trip, be prepared for gravel double track part of the way.
Also be prepared to fix flats as area vegetation provides a variety of thorns. It rains quite a bit in the area so you need to be ready for that as well. The bottom line is, if you are prepared, all or part of this trail will be a pleasant and memorable experience. We parked our cars in Caldwell, then took a shuttle up to Cass and pedaled southbound. We both had BOB Yak trailers and took comfy items such as a bag chair and a hammock for the best seating outdoors! We took our time and pedaled a scant 20 miles a day.
We stopped and looked at everything whenever inspiration hit us. Found wild mushrooms Chicken of the Wood and had them fried for breakfast the next day. We camped at the sites along the trail, stayed at Watoga State Park one night, had pizza and ice cream at Jack's Horner Corner. Well-water at the campsites was refreshingly cool on the hot and muggy days. We also used filter to drink river water. The best campsites had the wells and outhouses, and the sites were always clean and well-maintained.
The river itself had amazing, serene views. Often the water looked more like a peaceful lake than a moving river. I brought a fishing pole and caught smallmouth bass and panfish for breakfast and dinner.
The trail itself was in very good shape. No issues at all. Crushed limestone, a little soft in areas where new fill had been brought in, and then skinny two-tracks a little ways, but mostly one single wide track to follow.
Take your bikepacking stuff, do low miles, and high fun at the campsites! My wife and I were fotunate to be riding on one of our favorites this past weekend and were in Marlinton for the induction and the food and music afterwards. What a great trail-well deserving of the honor. We look foward to our "home" trail entering the hall of fame one of these days-The New River Trail in Virginia.
This was my second time on this great trail, taking a friend for his first time. There were some washboard bumps during miles 50s and 60s which shook your arms if you did not ride just to the edge of the tracks. Some where around Burnsides mile 42 there was a whole hillside of thousands of white and pink Trilliums- spectacular!
About the same location we saw two deer herds of 10 total and ran into a recent mud and stone washout of a gully above the trail which required walking the bikes for 15 feet. The excellent maintenance crew of four State Park employees know about the washout and will be fixing it.
It is not a problem but interesting to look hign up and wonder how that gully washed out. My friend and I rode from North Caldwell to the Denmar correctional facility. The surface on this section was excellent. This was the middle of October Many stretches were covered in leaves which for me was a detraction, adding noise to the ride but still a nice time of year to ride. There are river views but mostly through scrub trees. There are just enough restrooms. Campsites are plenty if you like that, some with well water pumps.
There were very few people on the trail at this time. All in all, a great riding surface through the woods. I would like to ride the remainder of the trail. West Virginia is extremely beautiful. Only regret was that we didn't do it in warmer weather, 85 degrees and up.
Very nice and rustic. Only heated with the fireplace, though--unless you cheat and use the gas oven in the kitchen in the morning like I did. We rode the trail over 3 days in 3 sections. The first day was from Keister north to Renick.
The road from route down to Keister is steep, twisting and only one lane wide and it is a two-way road. Fortunately, we met no one going in the opposite direction traveling in or out. There are a few driveways where one might pass but what are the odds you'd be next to one at the right time?
