We will camp on Friday and Saturday nights at Beartree and ride on the Virginia Creeper, which is a 16 mile long rail to trail. The best parts are a mostly downhill ride with great scenery and views! If you need to rent a bicycle or want a shuttle ride to Whitetop where the ride starts, one of the outfitters is The Bike Station in Damascus, Virginia. It is best to make a reservation at (866)[masked]. There are still available campsites at Beartree. Campers/RV and tents are mixed together. There is no electricity but there are hot showers. Make reservations at recreation.gov.
Bring all your food including lunch for the ride and for a potluck Sat supper if you wish to participate. Better bring warm clothes for the evening!
