Damascus is best known though, for The Va Creeper Trail, The Appalachian Trail and Backbone Rock.........









The Va Creeper Trail is best known as a bike trail, but also multi-use trail to bike, walk, run, fish, horseback​ ride, people watch and geocache, along with chances to observe and learn about the native fauna and flora, as well as the fascinating historical and economic role the railroad played in southwest Virginia.”



The Appalachian Trail is about 2,200 miles (3,500 km) long, though the exact length changes over time as parts are rerouted or modified. The Appalachian Trail Conservancy describes the Appal​achian Trail as the longest hiking-only trail in the world.”


Backbone Rock is 3.5 miles from Damascus. “Backbone Rock Trail is a 0.4 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Shady Valley, Tennessee that f​eatures a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.”

“I actually hiked from Damascus to Backbone Rock via the AT and a spur trail. It ended up being around 7 miles. The spur trail had a few good inclines and the AT was up and down the whole time. It was all woods.”
