“A classic Wayne route!”— Michaela Schoeffler
The run is made up of two linear trails, the Greenwood Trail and the Scenic River Trail, and the route can be taken in either direction for an ideal experience. After the first climb on the trail, the Ohio River is visible on the left and is best viewed during the winter months when fewer leaves are on the trees.
If you're looking for something to eat after your day, Newport has a couple of options. B & J's, The Jug, or Station Pizza (St. Mary's WV across the bridge) are all good choices.
Both trails are similar in terms of terrain and elevation, although the Greenwood Trail portion is more than twice as long. A segment of the extensive North Country Trail is accessible off the Greenwood Trail, designated by blue diamond tree markers.
Also, there is an optional out and back section on the Scenic River Trail (2 miles total) when you reach the end of Greenwood Trail. Otherwise, keep right at the fork to continue the loop to its completion.
