Journey of Discovery bicycle tour



August 14: Damascus is a vibrant village situated in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and is the gateway to the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area. It is traversed by the Appalachian Trail, the Virginia Creeper Trail, the Trans-America National Bicycle Route, the Iron Mountain Trail, the Daniel Boone Trail, the Crooked Road Musical Heritage Trail, Virginia's Birding and Wildlife Trail, and lies within a short distance of hundreds of miles of other hiking, horse, and biking trails. There are two hiking/biking hostels in town. Best known is "The Place", at the Methodist Church. I opted for the excellent Mount Roger's Outfitters' Hostel.
