The Virginia Creeper Trail is a rail-to-trail multi-use trail in southwest Virginia. It has two sections, the Upper being a fabulous 17 mi. downhill grade. Choose any of the bike shops in Damascus who will shuttle you and your bike to the top of Whitetop Mountain, and you just coast down the mountain. Wooded and cool, and the trail surface... More

I liked the ride up but the ride down is even better. The views are incredible and the history is very interesting as well.

This has become my husband's and I favorite trail. It is so beautiful and peaceful. Most of the ride is downhill except for the last 3 miles. They're many bridges to cross and rivers to wade in. We stopped along one river and ate our packed lunch. We rented bikes from the Shuttle Shack in Damascus who also shuttled us... More

2nd year in a row doing this ride. Nice people at Bike Depot. The views on this ride are beautiful. There is a small river that follows you the whole way plus intersections with the Appalachian Trail. You can ride at your own pace, stop for photos whenever you want. Truly relaxing day.

This place is so beautiful, cool, and peaceful. Everyone should visit often. My husband and I rode bikes on the trail and he trout fished while I waded in the creek. It was a wonderful day!

Each time we've rode it's been breathtaking! We try to do it once a year, either Fall or Spring. We don't pack a lunch, only water and eat lunch at fun little place along the way. This is a must do!!

Great fun nearly all downhill. Many water crossings. Nice burger place half way down! Inexpensive family fun! Beware the JRA- just ridin along- accident!

Our family loved the Creeper trail! We brought our own bikes and my 6 year old and 9 year old had no trouble doing the entire 17 miles from White top to Damascus. We used the Shuttle Shack to get us to the top, and they were even nice enough to pump up our tires a little before the ride!... More

I have rode bikes on this trail twice now and it has been marvelous both times. We got our bikes from The Bike Station and they take us up to the top with joy and send us off on a great time. Love the bridges that you go over and all the water and feeding the trout in the streams... More
