Wakefield and Lake Accotink Parks Professional Review and Guide
"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."
