Creeper Trail map sample

The official Virginia Creeper Trail map is printed by the Virginia Creeper Trail Club. One side details the Abingdon to Damascus section and the reverse side maps out the trail corridor from Damascus to Whitetop. All 34 mile markers are indicated along with each of the 47 trestle bridges. You’ll also find designations for access points, picnic shelters, restrooms, info kiosks, seasonal services and other vital information plus the elevation profile of the entire trail.

The official Creeper Trail map is available for purchase online or at the Welcome Center in Abingdon, as well as at many of the retail bike shops and shuttle services in Abingdon and Damascus.
