Fun For an Afternoon

Great bike ride with friends. Pack a lunch, hire a ride to the top and coast down to fun. Lots of outfitters will get you to your starting point

I rode the whole trail...White Top to Abingdon. But it is like two different worlds. The trip down from White Top was like going to the mall on a rainy Saturday! So many people on the trail made it hard to enjoy for someone that cycles on a regular basis. If you are looking for a fun activity on a... More

A scenic trail along the Holston River. We did part of it after coming off the AT and back to Damascus.

Rented bikes from Sundog Outfitters. The bikes were of good quality, the staff friendly and knowledgeable. I'd highly recommend both- Sundog and the Creeper Trail

We have ridden on a number of rail trails in the Mid-Atlantic region, and this trip had the best scenery, hands down. We did the section from Whitetop station to Damascus (take the shuttle from downtown Damascus). Barely had to peddle at all, no hills in that direction.

Have not ridden a bike a long distance in many years and was a little concerned BUT all my concern went away as soon as we got on the trail. The trail is not steep and has plenty of wonderful places to stop and take a break, if need be. The views are picture perfect and the trail is well... More

The Creeper Trail was a lot of fun for me. I don't do much bike riding, but my coworker suggested I go with her and I'm glad I did. We rented a bike at a bike shop and they haul you and the bike up to the top for about $24. As an out of shape person, it was a... More

The only way they could improve the Creeper Trail is to change the name. You should know it is not an improved/paved trail like the Silver Comet in Georgia, rather it is packed gravel. There are a few places that it is a bit bumpy due to erosion and probably wear and tear. I wouldn't recommend bringing your $2,000 road... More

Even better the second time around. So happy to bike it again after so many years later after graduating RU. The trip down from White Top to Damascus was beautiful and easy even now in my forties. The trail was quiet so it was even better on a cool day. Will return again to ride Damascus to Abingdon.

Amazing! Not much more to say other than doing it in the 'Fall' is a must. Gentile descent so would suit all ages and levels of fitness.
