and considered one of the best bike trails in the nation. The

choose to ride downhill from Whitetop to Damascus, a stretch
that follows Whitetop Laurel Creek for most of its distance.
The Virginia Creeper Trail is open to hiking, mountain biking
and horseback riding. The Virginia Creeper Trail surrounds you
with picturesque views, shady lanes and abundant wildlife.
