Virginia Creeper Trail

The 34.3-mile Virginia Creeper Trail was named after the steam engine that once creeped up the rails into the Iron Mountains. Also, a plant called the "Virginia Creeper" grew along its tracks. By the 1970s, many railroads were abandoned. And in 1986, the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy began converting old railroad beds into trail systems for hikers and bikers. The most common activity for first time visitors is biking the section from Whitetop Station to Damascus. Bike rental companies in Damascus and Abingdon will shuttle you to the top of the mountain for an easy ride down to Damascus.

If you want the most consistent snow in Virginia, you head to the highest elevations in the state. Grayson County, home to Mount Rogers and its surrounding 5,000-footers, is known as the “roof of Virginia.” It’s also home to arguably the best cross-country skiing in the state. Grayson Highlands State Park has ten miles of designated cross-country trails zig-zagging across 5,089-foot Little Pinnacle Mountain, which typically has enough snow to support the skinny-ski traffic during the coldest winter months.
