Damascus Travel Guide

The small town of Damascus in the Blue Ridge Mountains is known as 'Trail Town' due to the seven trails that intersect here. The town is a beautiful place full of natural wonders and is surrounded by the Appalachian Mountains, plus many creeks, hills and trees.

A friendly community awaits any visitor to Damascus, being the kind of place where people talk to strangers and locals sit out on the front porch.

Things to Do in Damascus

The Virginia Creeper Trail is a famous biking trail that passes right through Damascus on its 34-mile stretch. The trail is super easy to get to, just rent a bike in town and pick your direction.

Damascus is also a stop off on the Appalachian Trail, the Iron Mountain Trail and the Trans-America National Bicycle Trail, so if you have ever wanted to get lost for a while in the backcountry, this is the place to do it. You can also hike, horseback ride and kayak.

Fishing enthusiasts will want to stop-off at the trout stream Whitetop Laurel in Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, while keen kayakers can head to the South Fork of the Holston River known for its class II and III rapids.

After a long day of trails head to the Damascus Brewery, with an impressive range of craft brews and live music.

Best Time to Visit Damascus
