This website was first created in 2004 but was taken offline a few years ago because it was outdated.

Now it is being revived because there is content here, particularly on the history of the Creeper, that may be of interest to people who want a more in-depth understanding of how this remarkable rail trail, one of the best in the country, came to be.

This website will not cover all of the lodgings, bike shops, restaurants and things to do in the area. Many other sites do that. But if you enjoy the history of our area and of the Creeper Trail, welcome aboard.
