Damascus, VA

Two of my friends have independently told me Damascus, VA is a great place for hiking and biking. It is traversed by the Appalachian Trail, the Virginia Creeper Trail, and other trails. The Damascus is only about 1000 people. For an idea about facilities and services available, visit the town’s web site.

On the trip back from visiting my daughter in North Carolina, I decided to take a look. This is the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and the hiking season is mostly over. The following are my pictures.

I arrived at lunch time and had a great BBQ pork sandwich here.

There are at least four outfitters on the main drag. Here are two of them.

Thinking of moving there? Looks like a nice house.
