Mountain Bike! Virginia

Since DC does not have a lot to offer for mountain bikers I would rate this trail as the best in the area.
The day I rode it was over 90 degrees and humid. The temperature made for an exhausting but enjoyable ride. None of the climbs are very long nor overly steep.
Overall it is a lot of fun with varied terrain including some logs, plenty of roots and a few rocky sections, though nothing overly technical.
Fountain Head is probably the best in the DC metro area. I have done MB races and adventure races here. I have never seen it crowded to the point were it becomes a problem. It you like real mountain bike riding, its a great place to ride.
