The main trail is a gravel trail and is very easy. There are many single track trails off of the main trail. But beside the main trail entrance is an up-hill climb which is laden with large roots and babyhea**mall, sharp, loose rocks), presenting a precursor to this trail's condition. This immediate up-hill will bring you to the singletrack trail network, which split off many times from each other, creating many different combinations. If you begin taking consistent right turns when the trail splits you should be able to follow the railroad tracks. If done correctly, the trail overlooks the train tacks. But what ever trail you end up taking, you will encounter many large roots, up-hills and down hills, baby heads, a river crossing(depending on which trails you take), Log jumps, mud, and many other combinations. This is a very challenging trial due to its quick downhill/ uphill change, requring quick gear changes and an eye for a good line. The trail ends at the top of the Lake Accotink dam. Just follow the Asphalt path down to the information center. At Lake Accotink there are water fountains, boat rentals, and drink machines. If you continue past the beach to the bridge, you will follow a gravel trail which ends at the Wakefield ball fields. Continue on to the rec center and then onto the Wakefield trail network. To return to your parked car, take the asphalt trail back up past the Lake Accotink dam and then onto the gravel trail. This trail will quickly take you back to the trailhead.
