We've rented bikes for the Creeper Trail from Sundog several times and we have no complaints. We had six adults and all had a great time. If you are fortunate enough to be in the mountains during fall, the Creeper Trail is a MUST DO!

Sam was a friendly and reliable shuttle driver. (We rode with him twice.) The vans are very basic, but who needs "fancy" when section hiking the AT? The store is well stocked with hiking and bicycling essentials.
