Review: This is my favorite trail in the area and it's well maintained. Every time I ride here I find a different path from technical rocky sections to jumps. This trail is worth the drive.

Review: This was my first time riding any type of mountain bike trail. I had a blast! It's probably great for beginner/intermediate riders. My only complaints were the amount of huge roots in certain areas...but hey that can also add to the fun for some folks.

Review: MTB Friendly park. Really a network of trails. Took me 3 separate rides to cover it all. A few trails are actually groomed. Great workout. Can get busy.

Review: One of my favorite rides, or start of it at least. This trail connects to a network of miles and miles of trails including the CCT, difficult run, etc. My averages ride here is about 12 miles and it's never over the same route. Whatever you want, you can find in this network - climbs, technical challenges, stream crossings, jumps, etc. A solid ride after work on a weekday, or extended ride on the weekend.

Review: This trail system can be confusing to identify if you're new to the area because there are a lot of trails right together including Colt's Neck, Colvin Run & Difficult Run and parts of the paved W&OD bike path. However, there are great loops that connect all these and are a really fun place to ride. The maps are a little hard to read at times so just keep taking trails until you get to know your way around.

We think the best way to do this system is to park at the Reston SkateQuest and take the single track from there. It's pretty hard to get lost. That part all ends up at the cricket fields or the picnic areas. You can double back to the rink or take the full loop to the W&OD which leads back to Michael Faraday road to SkateQuest.

Great after work or beginner trail!
