The Virginia Creeper Trail is a 34-mile rail-trail that is considered one of the best bike trails in the nation. From Abingdon to Alvarado the trail crosses rolling farmland, and then slowly changes to a high mountain trail. Most people choose to ride downhill from Whitetop to Damascus, a stretch that follows Whitetop Laurel Creek for most of its distance.

The website listed below lists most of the amenities and activities found between the tiny river town of Alvarado and the high mountain town of Whitetop. Damascus lies midway on the trail. Activities along the trail are ideal for families and other people seeking outdoor activities.
