The Springs Trail
A Driving Tour of Historic Springs & Resorts
More then a hundred years ago, in what is today one of the most pristine rural areas in West Virginia, visitors came by the thousands to visit the many natural springs in Monroe, Greenbrier and Summers Counties. Where the healing waters flowed, grand resort hotels flourished. Some of them, such as the Greenbrier, continue to operate today. Others are abandoned now, their vast edifices and cool spring houses still whispering of past grandeur. Of some, only memories remain. The Springs Trail is a driving tour of these historic springs.
