Mountain Biking Harwood's Mill

****   Add a review
#38 of 300 mountain bike trails in Virginia
#1,268 in the world

The trail has two loops, novice and advanced. The novice trail is a nice twisty, rooty, small humped single-track. The advanced trail picks up where the novice trail ends, there are signs. The advanced trail is not much more difficult that the first, a few more roots, a couple of very small hills and log crossings. The track is a very fast single-track. I would ride this trail again! I recommend ridding both loops twice at decent speed and you'll have some fun! This is the best trail I've ridden so far in and around the VA beach, Newport News area.

Rider questions

Q: Which side of the water are the trails on? Are they on the sports complex side, or on the other side across the reservoir?
