  • Even if the park is busy, Greenbrier is usually very quiet. Good place for a picnic, or to get near the river.  more »
  • This is a great area to relax and just get away from some of the crowds. It's a lovely scenic drive along the river with pullouts and plenty of areas to wade or play on the rocks. A great area for a f...  more »
  • This is one of the local favorites with great places to get in the water and float with a tube. Many deeper pools for swimming as well. Take lunch and stay all day. Not too far from area eating places...  more »

  • Can hike, float or play if you're the active type. Or you can pull up a nice big rock, listen to the water flow by and let your soul be refreshed. Something for everyone! Plus, great place for a picnic.
  • Beautiful scenery, lots of tables & grills for charcoal grilling. Tables have an info placard about not feeding bears, suggestions, etc. Further up the hill has another picnic pavilion near the porter creek loop. Great place to drop out of cell phone signal and just connect with nature. Many trails right along river. River is a hot spot during the hottest days of summer, cool slide-like area over rocks, smooth from algae and mosses.
  • I've run into locals on hikes in here and they ask how I found the trail. It's that good that they don't tell anyone.
  • Great area next the the river to stop and picnic. Not very crowded either if you hit it right.
  • Nice picnic area clean and well kept
