The Virginia Creeper Trail is possibly the easiest, prettiest mountain bike ride you will ever encounter. The VA Creeper Trail, which is actually the "retired" railway corridor of the Virginia-Carolina Railroad, has become one of the most popular bicycling trail destinations in the eastern United States.
The Va Creeper Trail stretches 34 miles from Abingdon, Virginia down thru the lovely town of Damascus, Va (known as the Heart of the Va Creeper) along the Whitetop Laurel River and up to its highest point Whitetop Station near the NC State Line at Whitetop, Virginia. The Va Creeper Trail is open year round to hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.
This former rail bed passes through the Mount Rogers National Recreation area and the highland country of Southwestern Virginia. The Virginia Creeper Trail is rich in beauty and regional history. This is an easy biking adventure that you and your friends and family will talk about for a long time.
Join us on this April 24th, 2020 VA CREEPER TRAIL RIDE!!!
