This ride's general location is just outside the Capital Beltway in Springfield, Virginia, in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. Scenery includes woods, suburbs, and a lake. Want an easy, scenic ride on a wide dirt trail that circumnavigates a forested lake? You got it: the main loop trail is 3.75 miles long, virtually flat, and a sheer delight to ride. It's also a great warm-up for miles of unmarked single-track trails that delight hammerheads. As you ride the main loop you will see the hardpack dirt trails plunging into the woods in all directions. Local riders say it's single-track heaven, with short, steep hills, lots of gnarly tree roots, and adrenaline-inducing whoop-de-doos.
