The Greenbrier River winds just a little distance east of the New River Gorge National River in southern West Virginia. This relatively calm river stretches a sinuous 150-plus miles, some of it through the spectacular Monongahela National Forest. The Greenbrier is a class I to III river, affording novice rafters a great chance to enjoy wonderful scenery along the ambitiously long route. The Greenbrier is also a favorite canoeing river. The path of the Greenbrier will take you past many state parks and the remnants of old logging communities. Think about starting your Greenbrier adventure where the Greenbrier and New rivers diverge, just below the dam near Hinton. Several outfitting companies are based in Hinton, and they can give you ample information about floating or canoeing the Greenbrier.
