Review: This is a terrific trail network. First time here and it was an absolute blast. IMO, it is very well laid out to maximize trail flow within the context of amount of acreage and terrain of the park. It's basically a dedicated playground for mtb'ers. The current trail length as indicated by the mile markers is ~15m if you ride through the entire system (although only 12.7m registered on my Garmin). It's uni-directional which is great as you never have to worry about someone coming the other way as you fly around a corner. These trails are really built for intermediate & advanced riders. There are quite a few climbs although they are relatively short and have been designed to snake back up as opposed to the descents which are fun and fast! Plenty of opportunity to test your skills - and get some air - with plenty of rollers, bumps, drops, banks, rocks, skinnies, etc. If only all trails were half as well maintained as FH! Among the most fun trail systems I've ridden. Can't wait to go back.

Review: This trail is an absolute monster. It starts out with beginner trail and it gradually moves all they way to double diamond. My friends broke his chain on the first half mile. About 8 miles in I broke my frame. This trail has a lot of flow to it with obstacles, jumps, climbs, and even drop offs. I had a blast. On my next vacation I will return with a fresh frame (repaired under warranty) ready to master this one again.

Review: This is the best trail in the DC area, bar none. I usually ride the beginner and intermediate trails, rode the expert trails as a kid before they really started building them up. Lots of flowy up and down, plenty of interesting features, including a number of plywood ramps, skinnies, etc.

Review: Great trails with tons of steep/long climbs. Some great downhills on the back end of the climbs but more climbing than downhills by far. There aren't tons of bail outs like in some other trail systems so don't go further in than you can handle. You'll likely have to turn around & backtrack your way out at some point. Def worth a ride, but navigation can be a bit tricky.
