We walked the path on a rainy morning all by ourselves. It felt like stepping back eons in time. Definitely worth checking out

Very interesting and unique place. A nice boardwalk loop trail to see cranberry bogs, carnivorous plants and may other oddities that you don't normally see. It had been raining before our visit and a few sections of the boardwalk were underwater but passable.

Walked around the boardwalk on a very quiet evening. Very nice scenery and learning experience. We were the only two in the entire area which made it even more enjoyable.

Some of the boardwalk is really nice, but there are areas that badly need repaired. While they are sturdy enough to support us walking through, there are areas that gap and one area that was not supported right and when you stepped on it, the...More

Our trip to the Greenbrier River Valley always includes a trip to the Cranberry Glades. The visitor center is closed several days a week, but the boardwalk is open. It is a short distance, but there are so many plants to see anytime of year.

We did not see any signs about no dogs but some areas are very swampy so it's important to stay on Boardwalk
