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
