WHAT:    Virginia Creeper Trail 17-mile Bike Trip

WHEN:    Friday, November 11 - Sunday November 13

WHERE:    The Virginia Creeper Trail stretches 35 miles from Abingdon Virginia thru Damascus Virginia to the NC State Line near Whitetop Virginia.

From it's beginning as a Native American foot trail to its current use as a multiple use recreational trail, the Virginia Creeper Trail has seen many changes in 100+ years of existence. In the early 1900's, the trail was used as a rail line to haul lumber and passengers from Abingdon, VA to Elkland, NC (Now Todd, NC). The Virginia Creeper Trail provides 35 mile passage through southwest Virginia's mountains well suited for hiking, horseback riding and bicycling, as well as a convenient path to many great fishing locations. The Creeper Trail received its name for the methodical way the train moved up the gradual incline to the top of the mountain.  There are over 100 trestles and bridges over the 35 miles.

Campground  approximately 4 hours.
