Durbin, founded in 1906 and home to the headwaters of the Greenbrier River, is a town settled deep in West Virginia's rich rail history. Leaving from Cass Scenic Railroad State Park, guests can travel through time on their way to Durbin while weaving between the Monongahela's breathtaking mountain vistas on a Heisler No. 6 steam locomotive with an authentic 1920s-era railcar and vintage wooden caboose. In town, visitors can grab a bite to eat at the Station 2 restaurant, refuel with a cup of Simply Sweet's delicious coffee, and learn about Durbin's past on a historic walking tour! Nearby Civil War trails at Cheat Summit Fort, Camp Bartow, and Camp Allegheny offer another perfect opportunity to connect with Durbin's unique mountain story. For those outdoor explorers who want to get their feet wet and shoes muddy, Durbin's central location within the National Forest provides the perfect playground. Anglers can cast their lines at the well-stocked Buffalo Lake or venture into the native trout streams for a catch the folks back home won't believe. Likewise, hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians will find a trail network with the ideal blend of challenge and accessibility. Whether taking on the West Fork Rail Trail, High Falls Trail, Mower Basin Trails, Gaudineer Scenic Area Trails, or one of the dozens of other paths nestled in the Durbin area, there's an adventure waiting for all ages and abilities. For those who wish to camp, possibilities abound, from dispersed National Forest sites such as the Island and Laurel Fork Campgrounds to the developed East Fork Campground with overnight stable options for horses. Join us every summer for the Durbin Days Heritage Festival, a celebration of the town's unique culture and tradition.
