Abingdon Weekend

Created by: Casey

There's so much we want to do in Abingdon. I hope we can get all of this in in a weekend.

Day 1

    James River Brewing
    561 Valley St., Scottsville, VA, 24590

    (434) 286-7837

    James River Brewing, or JRB, first opened in 2012 and has continued to delight ever since!  The mission of the brewery is to provide a great local space where community members and visitors to the town alike can come together in fellowship and fun as well as to produce awesome brews!  The brewery is located in the heart of Scottsville in a 4 story 19th century brick building that once served as a tobacco factory.  Another great asset is its situation on a tributary to the James River called Mink Creek where you'll find a very lovely beer garden.  Come by for a tasting, order up a pint or two and enjoy our historic, quaint town- you may just catch some amazing musical acts while your there too!  Check out the website/facebook for more details!

The brewery takes its name from the original appellation that Daniel Boone gave to the wilderness that became Abingdon.

Drawing from this rich history, Wolf Hills Brewing CO melds together time honored brewing methods using only the highest quality ingredients with modern beer styles inspired by the wide array of fragrant hops from the Pacific-Northwest. Wolf Hills brews in small batches that are only distributed in the Virginia Highlands. The result is a level of fresh, savory beer that is unmatched in this region. Discover one of our many styles for yourself during our Growler Hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-7PM . . . you’ll be howling for more.

    The Virginia Creeper Trail is a 35 mile multiple-use trail rail trail in southwestern Virginia.  The trail runs from Abingdon through Damascus to Whitetop, Va, near the North Carolina state line -through National Forest and crosses numerous trestles.

    In Damascus, "the Friendliest Town on the Traill", the Creeper crosses over the many national and regional trails that pass through this little town.  The Virginia Creeper Trail, Appalachian Trail, 76 TransAm Bicycle Route, Crooked Road, Round the Mountain, Iron Mountain Trail, and the Daniel Boone Heritage Trail all cross at the same intersection.

    The Trail that began as a Native American footpath and later, the European pioneers, as well as early explorer Daniel Boone, used the trail that traversed through the beautiful area. Shortly after 1900, W.B. Mingea constructed the Virginia-Carolina Railroad from Abingdon to Damascus. In 1905, the line was extended to Konnarock and Elkland, NC. In its day, the line hauled lumber, iron ore, supplies, and passengers. It got its nickname, Virginia Creeper, from the early steam locomotives that struggled slowly up the railroad's steep grades.

    Bicycle rental and shuttle services are available for a fun filled family adventure.
