VIRGINIA CREEPER TRAIL
ABINGDON, VIRGINIA -USA

Description:
  • RAILS TO TRAILS
Web Site VIRGINIA CREEPER TRAIL HOMEPAGE
Comments/Directions:
Dead ends at Abingdon, also goes through the town of Damascus, VA. About 35 miles long, with Damascus almost dead center. From White Top Station to Damascus is the most popular recreational ride as it is almost all downhill (quite steep at times ... hence the name of the railroad as the "Creeper") and very isolated. Between Damascus and Abingdon it is mostly through farmland and woods.
