The Virginia Creeper Trail

The Virginia Creeper Trail is 35 miles of pure delight for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. The trail stretches from Abingon VA through Damascus VA, all the way to the North Carolina state line near Whitetop VA. Biking, horseback riding, and hiking are all permitted on the Creeper Trail. They even offer bike rentals, shuttles and food along the way as well as bed and breakfasts that boast the natural scenery. This trail is very rich in natural beauty as well as local history. The trail was once a railway bought by the Virginia-Carolina Railroad Company and operated for nearly 100 years until it was left destroyed by torrential rain. The tracks were ripped up in 1977, leaving it a premier biker and hiker haven.

With its pristine beauty, natural rivers and waterfalls, there is no question why the Creeper Trail is a favorite among locals. You can enjoy a day of fly fishing or enjoy a leisurely stroll and learn about the unique history of Southwest Virginia. You may also try kayaking down the river that runs along much of the Virginia Creeper Trail. This trail is fun for the whole family with easier levels of difficulty.

Come check out the Virginia Creeper Trail for a day trip or spend more time and cover every inch of this 35 mile trail that boasts natural beauty and Southwest Virginia?s history! You will be amazed at how beautiful this area is and all of the fun things there are to do!
