Whitetop Station Visitor Center
Whitetop Station is a great starting point for an exciting bike ride down the Virginia Creeper Trail. Whitetop Station is a visitor center that shares the story of the local train history and mountain community through displays of historic photos and memorabilia. The current building, constructed in 2000, replaces 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.
