Damascus VA, Trail Town USA
Damascus is a small town with a big claim to fame: Several nationally known trails intersect within our town limits, making Damascus "Trail Town USA". In fact, simply taking a stroll downtown means interacting with our local trail system. Thanks to the efforts of our community - local government, dedicated staff, scores of volunteers, and residents - we've found ways to turn these trails and our other outdoor recreation resources into a source of local pride and community revitalization.
We cherish the lifestyle that this affords us. It’s the sounds of families enjoying the Virginia Creeper Trail. It’s the creativity found in our downtown artisans. It’s the intermingling of cultures as the hikers signal the Spring-time with their arrival on the Appalachian Trail. It’s the taste of the signature beer and spirits at our local microbrewery and distillery. It’s the inspiration of the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area in our backyard. It’s the conversations, the sharing of stories and shaping of memories, and the smiles of a welcoming community.
The Damascus lifestyle is adventurous and creative, yet relaxed. It’s a place where you can be super-active (ultramarathons, anyone?), or where you can slow down to reconnect with nature, rejuvenate, and find your inner peace. It's a place where you can take time to make memories with friends and family. Most importantly, this is a place where you can find your own path. We cherish this lifestyle, and know you will too.
