SAT- VIRGINIA CREEPER TRAIL AND APPALACHIAN TRAIL
I have heard about the Virginia Creeping Trail near Abington and Damascus, VA... but I can say this, it was better than advertised.
The entire 17 miles from White Top back to Damascus is DOWNHILL. I hardly had to pedal.
But we took our time... the trail has beautiful scenery, amazing bridge trestles and stocked trout areas.
Though we talked about an all day ride, the 1/2 day was plenty
Every part of the trail was cool!
After a picnic lunch... we then hiked about 3 hours on a part of the Appalachian Trail....
SUNDAY- BREAKS INTERSTATE PARK AND JUBILEE IN THE BREAKS
It is billed as 'The Grand Canyon of the South' and it too was better than advertised- wow, majestic!
We drove to the visitor center after gawking at The Towers Overlook.. where really nice park officials pointed out where hikers should go...
We then parked at the Stateline Overlook and hiked The Notches, The Ridge Trail, The Grassy Creek Trail, and the River Trail....
And the down to the river, back up the mountain was TOUGH!
We enjoyed a Gospel Music festival in the amphitheater after that... and then took the beautiful Hwy 23 back to Johnson City.
Just an amazing trip...
Virginia is a beautiful state!
God's beautiful creation
The blessings of health, weather, safety
Memories with the fam!
