The Virginia Creeper Trail is a rails to trails path that runs from Abingdon through Damascus to Whitetop Station.

The Virginia Creeper Trail is a 35-mile (56 km) multi-purpose rail trail in southwestern Virginia. The trail runs from Abingdon to Whitetop, Virginia, near the North Carolina state line - through National Forest and crossing numerous restored trestles and crossing the Appalachian Trail.


The trail descends from Abingdon to Damascus, traversing rolling farm countryside and numerous parcels of private property - requiring opening and closing private gates along the route. From Damascus, hikers, cyclists and equestrians ascend to Whitetop, following Laurel Creek. Cyclists can use a shuttle service to Whitetop for the 17-mile (27 km) return descent.
