Makes sure to take your time and to stop and see the natural and cultural sights along the way. We picked apples in September.

Beautiful downhill coast through the mountains and by a stream. The area bike rentals are convenient but we plan on returning with our own bikes and a picnic lunch.

This trail was so much fun. We rented bikes from an outfitter, who drove us to the terminus of Whitetop Mountain, where we began our leisurely 17-mile ride back down to Damascus. The fall scenery was splendid, the trestle bridges plentiful, and the ride incredibly easy since it was almost all downhill. This is an old rail-bed and one of... More

My sister and I did a bike ride on the Creeper Trail in Damascus. We rented our bikes from Sundog Outfitters and were transported up the mountain. Staff were friendly and the ride beautiful.

Close to a perfect fall-colors day, gliding downhill for 17 miles among the woods, farms, and burbling stream, many beautiful bridges with great views, wide trail, a bit of history, both Damascus and especially Abington great little towns. Very friendly townspeople. We really want to go back.

This rail to trail is absolutely stunning! The first 16 miles of the 34 mile trail take you from the Whitetop Mountain Station down through Mt Rogers and into the small quaint stop of Damascus. A booming little village courtesy of the VCT. The trail grade is down hill and easy enough a novice can handle it and should do... More

We have been planning to do the Virginia Creepr Trail for 4 years and finally did it. Now that we have; we plan to do it again and again. Most of the ride is a canopy of trees with several crossings of the river. It's a great trail and certainly an easy ride if you are going downhill. We would... More

We went down the Creeper in the rain and had a ball! Worried at first, we decided you only live once and went any way. I've never laughed so hard to see us all covered in mud from head to toe. It was awesome! FYI: Where rain gear or a poncho, gloves, be sure to have extra clothes to change... More

We rented bikes from the Shuttle Shack, and were extremely pleased with the bikes and the service. Shuttle to Whitetop was fun -- enjoyed talking with other passengers who had done the trail before. The trail itself was so beautiful! Great fall scenery, and not too crowded on a weekday. Enjoyed lunch at the Trail Cafe -- it was pretty... More

What a great experience. The day started out cool and sunny with bright blue skies. One of our first attractions was a pumpkin patch and Christmas tree farm. A nice day for scenic touring of the Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountain range. We were outfitted out and driven to the top of the range. It was about a 2 and half... More
