Old Mill Inn.
Cyclists know this small town as “Trail Town USA,” thanks to its prime biking location. The Appalachian Trail, Trans-America National Bicycle Trail, Iron Mountain Trail, Daniel Boone Heritage Trail, Crooked Road Musical Heritage Trail, Virginia’s Birding and Wildlife Trail and Virginia Creeper Trail, one of the most popular rail-trails along the Eastern Seaboard, all run through the area.
The town has eight bike shops, including Adventure Damascus Bicycles, Bike Station and Damascus Cycle Works. Bikers often stop into Damascus Old Mill Inn near the Virginia Creeper Trail where they can grab a bite to eat and stay overnight. Mojoe’s Trailside Coffeehouse on Douglas Drive offers coffees and smoothies.
