Creeper Trail Bike Rentals

Fun and exercise in the fresh mountain air

The best way to experience the Virginia Creeper Trail.

Biking the trail allows you to enjoy all its natural beauty with ease! The VA Creeper Trail is considered by many people to be the most scenic bike trail in the United States, and why so many come back year after year. The most popular activity for first time visitors is biking the section from Whitetop Station to Damascus. We will shuttle you to the top of the mountain for an easy ride down to Damascus, or you can ride the full 34 miles to Abingdon, VA and we'll pick you up there.

If you're looking for great fun and exercise in the fresh mountain air, or an enjoyable family adventure in the great outdoors, biking this well maintained rails-to-trail system is sure to please.

SHUTTLE SERVICE

From 9:00AM to 4:30PM – About every 90 minutes
Shuttle from Damascus Virginia will run  approximately every 90 minutes on busy days, less often on slower days.

Since most people prefer to ride the Whitetop to Damascus section of the Virginia Creeper Trail, we will run the shuttle to Abingdon VA only as it is necessary to retrieve our more ambitious clients.
We can provide pick up at local rental cabins, vacation homes, and campgrounds and also shuttle cross country skiers and hikers to area trails. These services by reservation only.
RIDE TIMES

Ride times will vary with riding experience and how many times and for how long you want to stop and enjoy the towering trestle crossings, breathtaking waterfalls, and other magnificent scenery along the way. There are also stores and restaurants along the trail to get a snack or grab a quick bite, and there are restored train stations (open in Season) that will demand a stop for further exploration.

Generally allow a minimum of 1.5 hours for the Whitetop to Damascus ride. It is almost all downhill requiring a minimal amount of pedaling, but it is very easy to spend 3 - 4 hours if riding at a leisurely pace to better enjoy this wonderful excursion.

When riding from Damascus to the Abingdon trailhead, you should allow about 2.5 hours minimum. This part of the trail is beautiful as well, but it covers more rolling terrain with much more pedaling required. If you are trying to schedule your time to incorporate other activities into your day, don't forget to allow 30 - 45 minutes for the loading of the bikes, shuttle travel time, and unloading the bikes at your departure point.
