Damascus Loop

Damascus Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This fun and unusual hike incorporates the trail town of Damascus, Virginia, with national forest trails in its shadow. Leave Damascus Town Park on the Virginia Creeper Trail. Along the way, you see Damascus and the streams that fl ow through it. Leave the Creeper Trail for the Appalachian Trail. Take that famous footpath up through wooded ridges. Pass a rewarding view of adjacent mountains. Meet the Iron Mountain Trail. Dip into a hollow and return to Damascus, rejoining the AT as it parades directly through downtown."
