    Greenbrier River Trail, WV then to MAHHA

    I'm going to bike ride & camp on the Greenbrier. I plan on parking at Watoga Park mp 46, on Friday October 18 then biking up to Marlinton, mp 56, for dinner then up to a campsite north of Marlinton, mp 68 for the night. In the morning biking up to Cass, mp 78 having a brunch there then biking all the way back to Watoga Park for the MAHHA Saturday afternoon.

    Greenbrier River Trail, WV then to MAHHA

    Well I didn't camp on the trail but I did bike on the Greenbrier on Saturday. I saw 2 bald eagles. The trail is excellent and it was well worth the 7 hr drive. (It included a detour to the Ambler Distillery with taste testing their bourbon.)

    My bike goes with me to next MAHHA at Watoga! I'm going to add in a couple of extra days. The area is too big for a short weekend.

    It was closed Sunday when stopped by it.

    here is a picture of the distillery. I do like their Rye Whiskey and was hoping for a sample before I left WV...oh well maybe next time

    Great! I plan on taking a couple of extra days to do the Greenbrier or maybe the more remote North Fork trail by Durbin.

    I stopped there on my way to MAHHA. Great place. "Old Scout Bourbon" was made for this old scout!
