An absolutely wonderful experience. We were able to have the red tailed hawk land on our gauntleted arms. Linda was a first rate teacher and instructor and gave us many interesting facts about raptors.

The Greenbrier offers both flat walking trails along the golf course and more challenging mountain side trails for all our guests to enjoy, The valley view trail would be perfect to walk at a pace to accommodate you.
