We only did about a 3 mile walk along the trail, but I thought the scenery was so beautiful and we were lucky enough to see some deer which was awesome. Well worth a walk along here if you're in the area :)

I took a group of 30 Boy Scouts to the Creeper Trail in August. Weather was perfect temperature. We started at Whitetop and biked down to Damascus, then took a shuttle back. The downhill was easy enough boys of all ages, and even more important the adult leaders, all made it without too much effort. A little crowded at times,... More

My family and I have ridden the Creeper Trail at least once a year for almost 20 years. We always have a great time, sun, rain or even snow. We've done the trail in all types of weather and we have fun no matter the weather. For bike rental and shuttle service I recommend The Bike Shop in Damascus. Here's... More

The Virginia Creeper Trail is a great experience for all ages. You can bring your own bike or rent one from the many rental and shuttle services in Damascus. The shuttle will take you up the trail about 17 miles and drop you and your bike. Then enjoy the ride down and enjoy the views. I would highly recommend a... More

This Trail is about 35 miles long from White Top, VA to Abingdon, VA. It is an old railroad bed that was converted to a trail for bicyclists and hikers. It is primarily dirt, gravel and crushed rock. We brought our own bikes but you can also rent them at White Top or in Damascus (probably in Abingdon too). Damascus... More

I question some of the reviews on the VA Creeper Trail. Some folks said it was boring and that two or three miles you had seen it all. I must take note of that. I work in retail and the VA Creeper Trail provided me with 3+ hours of wonderful relaxing biking. I saw deer and other wildlife and completely... More

Great ride! Went during a non crowded Monday. Will stop more next time to take it all in. Hard to sight see while watching for rocks, ect.. You do have to pay attention. Both teenage sons wiped out, but survived and lived to tell about it. A very nice man at the Upbeet Cafe offered to help with the first... More

This was our second time, and we were so glad we did it again. Do you remember riding a ride a pen amusement park and running off and getting right back in line to ride it again? That's how we felt! I now want to experience it in different seasons.

This is a lovely trail to bike ride, walk or run on near Damascus, VA. This gentle trail is acceptable for most abilities and meanders through the woods along a river where wildlife can be seen. If you are seeking a more serene and solitary experience, head out early in the morning, before it becomes crowded with other trail users.... More
