Beaver Creek Dam Trail Description

The Beaver Creek Dam Trail gets its name from the circa-1905 Beaver Dam Railroad, which it follows through the southwestern Virginia town of Damascus. A highlight of the route is the trail's 90-foot-long bridge over the gurgling Beaver Dam Creek.

On its northern end, the half-mile rail-trail connects to the incredibly scenic Virginia Creeper Trail in the town park. From there, the pathway travels south towards the Tennessee line, ending at the town's baseball fields just south of the Damascus Public Library.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the northern end of the trail in Damascus Town Park. At the southern end of the trail, you can park near the baseball fields at S. Shady Ave. and Intermont St.
