Snow Bike Ride On The Virginia Creeper

The Virginia Creeper Trail is a 35 mile trail in Southwest Virginia.  Abby Gail, Stone and I only did 17.5.   Hey, there was so much snow to ride through!  The trail runs from Abingdon to Whitetop, Virginia near the North Carolina state line.  The trail crosses numerous restored trestles and the Appalachian Trail through the National Forest.
