Whitetop Station Visitor Center

Whitetop Station is often the place where bikers get dropped off by shuttle before they begin an exciting bike ride down the Virginia Creeper Trail.  Whitetop Station serves as a visitor center and has an interesting history. The building is a replica of the original train station that sat atop the highest point on the Abingdon Branch of the Norfolk and Western Rail Lines until it was abandoned in 1977.  The replica was reconstructed in 2000 and displays many historic photos and memorabilia about the train history and mountain community.
