Event description
From our basecamp, join us for a weekend of hiking the Mount Rogers area and biking the Virginia Creeper Trail.

About this Event

Join us for a weekend of biking and hiking in southwestern Virginia. We’ll start with a leisurely hike around the campground after check-in on Friday. Saturday, we’ll bike the iconic Virginia Creeper Trail, from the top of Whiteside Mountain into Damascus, Virginia, Trail Town USA. The Virginia Creeper follows an old rail line (the rails and ties long since replaced by finely crushed gravel) for 17 miles into Damascus (the first 14 miles are downhill, the last 3 flatten out and require some pedaling). Not into biking? We’ll have a group headed to the Grayson Highlands/Mount Rogers area for an 8-mile hike in the rocky, open terrain for which the region is known. Late Saturday afternoon we’ll explore Damascus, the trail-friendliest town in the U.S. Sunday, we’ll hike from the campground up to Wilburn Ridge and Rhododendron Gap, some of the most wide-open and sweeping terrain in the Southeast.

Fee includes:

  • Camping Friday and Saturday nights
  • 2 breakfasts
  • 2 lunches
  • 1 dinner
  • Trail snacks
  • Bike rental
