The creeper trail was our first vacation where the bike ride was the focus of our vacation and it did not disappoint. Out of all the places we have been riding bikes, this was our family's favorite. The ride is long, but manageable- the slow descent allows you to coast most of the trip. Our family are not cyclists. In... More

This is a beautiful bike ride! We are not experience cyclist at all and we had a great time! The course is downhill so it's not a difficult trail. Definitely worth the money to rent a bike/shuttle!

This is an absolutely spectacular bike trail. Great for all ages as you can mostly coast for miles as you descend White Top mountain. The trail can get crowded on weekends so for the ultimate experience try and schedule your adventure on a weekday. You will love this trail

A 17-mile ride that is all a gentle downhill slope. The trail winds along a mountain creek through wooded forests thick with rhododendron, and meets the Appalachian trail in a couple of places. You can rent a bike in Damascus or bring your own - there are several bike shops that shuttle you to the trail head. It's not to... More

Beautiful trail, wonderful ride. If it has recently rained you may want to wear older clothes and/or bring a change of clothes, as we all ended up with dirt on front and back of clothes.

Though it had looked like rain, the four of us were blessed with a very pleasant Saturday morning in July. There was only a short part to peddle at the top (maybe 200 yards) and at the end (perhaps half mile?), but both of these were flat and easy for even me (very out of shape). Recommendations: (1) Know what... More

Rode 17 miles of the trail today from white top to Damascus. Rode shuttle from Damascus to white top. Great experience even though it has been years since I rode a bike. Easy grade and nearly downhill the whole way!

Great bike trail. We rode from Damascus to Whitetop (uphill). If you have the legs and lungs, I recommend doing the trail in both directions. You see so much more on the uphill journey, and then you can truly enjoy the downhill on the way back. The trail is a hard-packed gravel surface which would be fine for mountain, hybrid,... More

My husband and son-in-law rode about 17 miles of the trail and had a great time. My husband is 60 and in good shape for bike riding so they rode from Damascua toward Abingdon and back.
