Trip Report Cycling the Virginia Creeper-a trip report

Jump to last reply

The Virginia Creeper Trail is roughly 34 miles long from White Top Mountain to Abingdon. The first 17 miles from White Top to Damascus is all downhill. It is perfect for any skill level. The trail is not winding or difficult and everyone can have fun doing it. The second half has a relatively small but unremitting incline, so the return to Abingdon can be tiring pedaling all the way.

This past weekend a group of friends went to Abingdon to ride the Creeper and visit the Highlands Craft/Arts/Music Festival.

Who we were: We ranged in age from 5-65.
Where we stayed: Because our group was large and included a number of kids we opted for the Hampton Inn. It was an excellent choice. It is clean and has a pool, free internet, included breakfast in the rate and is convenient to town. The rooms are adequately sized and have microwaves, fridges, and coffee makers. For the kids, flat screen tv's and games.

Where we dined:
We had lunch at Ellis' Drug Store which had been recommended by hotel staff. It was not very good although the service was cheerful and pleasant. Review posted on TA.
We had a group dinner at Wild Flour. I would highly recommend this choice. The food was excellent and we all enjoyed our meals. Review posted on TA.

It was a lovely way to spend a weekend with friends. GO!
