Whitetop Mountain

Whitetop Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"This ride's general location is 15 miles east of Damascus. Scenery includes great top-of-the-world views. Whitetop Mountain remains the highest point you can climb on a mountain bike.

Those of you who want to look down on the rest of Virginia will want to make a run at this out-and-back. You can also view mountain peaks in neighboring North Carolina and Tennessee from here. Anyone attempting this ride should be a strong climber, since you'll gain nearly 1,000 feet during the 4.2 mile "out" portion of this thigh burner."
