Mountain Biking Two Creeks Trail Area

***   Add a review
#237 of 285 mountain bike trails in Virginia
#11642 in the world

The trail area is in a bird sanctuary. There is a outerloop which is for horses and hikers, and is prohibited. The inner loop is the mountain bike loop. The trail consists of singletrack hard pack clay-dirt. There are just enough small rocks and roots to make the trail entertaining. There are NO steep ups or downs, logs, drops, or jumps. The trail does have great flow and if ridden fast, the mild ups and downs mixed with very fun corners makes it a trail to check out at least one time. The biggest downfall is the short length. However, if you take multiple laps as fast as possible the trail is very enjoyable and good practice for cornering [one way loop]. I will definately go back soon.

Getting there
Off of the W&OD trail at mile 30.5. If coming from Leesburg travel east on route 7 about 3-5 miles. Make a right on Cochran Mill Rd. Travel about 2-3 miles. You will see the signs for W&OD and will be by a quarry. Parking is next to the W&OD trail crossing. Park and take the W&OD east towards Sterling, VA [power lines on your left] for about .5 miles and the trail head is on your left.

    This trail is complete crap. Almost completely overgrown (hit your head and sides on overgrowth the entire ride) and there are a few sketchy people living in the woods on the trail. Not safe!

    It's not worth the time it takes to reach this trail for a really lame loop with no flow.

    This 1 mile loop is short, but technical. Lot of ruts, rocks and roots and some short steeps. A bit challenging for true beginners. For a good workout, do numerous loops. Low spot on trail is always muddy and can be dangerous as deep mud in front of bridge can easily grab front wheel and send one over bars. This should be fixed!

    Ticks, ticks, ticks. Rode this on 8/19/13 and my son and I had about a dozen nymph-stage ticks on us afterwards each. Very small and barely visible, thankfully when they're on the move they are easy to spot, if they've latched on they are very hard to find. The trail itself was pretty good, I remember enjoying it at the time, but my memory is tempered by the frantic tick check.

    I ride this once-twice a week and even at night. A friend and I have done some clearing in Sept 2012 that helped. The main loop is a good quick fix. Need to get approval to expand the trail system and add some technical factors. Keep checking for TICKS

    Newb to mountain biking and generally have a bit of a drive to get to trails for practice. If I'm not heading out for a long ride with the boy I've been riding the 6 miles to this trail on the W&OD, doing a few loops on this for some technical practice and then riding the 6 miles back home. I don't think it's too shabby of a workout, although, yeah it's very short. :) As a beginner, I'm glad it's nearby. Also (shudder) haven't experienced the poison oak or ticks yet ... hope I didn't jinx myself.* Review edited 8/6/2012

    This trail is short but good enough to get the urge out of your system. This trail splits not too long after the start. If you stay to the left of the split you wont get lost and complete the loop, however, if you go to the right it is not recommended for beginners. The right at first leads down to the creek but the trail quickly erodes. Im prettt sure I was riding on 2 foot long brush at one point. Luckily i got reconnected to the main loop. If you are bored of the regular loop and have some experience make a right at the first split. The main loop has some nice turns and you can catch some speed but its not a smooth trail by any means. I also got smacked by some overgrown trees. I dont know what poison oak looks like but i did get a small rash on my leg so avoid rubbing against any plant as much as possible. There seems to be two or three mudholes tht dont dry up. When i finish the loop i always check for ticks carefully, i have found them on me every time this week. Also noticed a very strong potent odor in the trail, think there might be skunks.

    Had to go around several times to get a workout. Lots of tall grass, shrubs, and tree branches spilling into the trail and hit your legs. Saw some poison oak and found a tick crawling on my leg when I got home. I would not ride here again.

    Really nice trail to start the season with, easy and nice, sharp corners after downhills and a couple uphills after them make this track a lil challenging but fun after all. Been riding here a couple years now and i stil love it, quick workout to start the season.

    Awesome trail for a quick workout. Lots of twists and turns, some hills. Stays super muddy awhile after it rains, but other than that pretty fun.

    I've ridden this trail several times now and have fun every time I'm on it. Pretty smooth ride without too many rocks and roots to maneuver around. Nothing too technical about it really, just make sure that you're not in too high of a gear range or else you'll be walking up a couple of surprising hills that pop up after a couple of the turns. The trail is interesting enough to keep you wanting to go for a few laps before hopping back on the W&OD trail to get back to your car. * Review edited 1/13/2009

    Two Creeks Trail
    Only riding a few months now, but I find this fairly challenging,
    and a lot of fun. I time my laps and try to do better the next week.

    There must be a different section to this. Cause I went west on route 7 from Ashburn VA, and parked near Goose Creek Golf Course. Went under the rte 7 Bridge over goose creek and found what i thought was goose creek trail. It was fun, a good amount of logs to jump over. About 2 1 foot wide wood bridges and one like 7 inches wide wood plank bridge. Steep drops into creek beds.
    1 or 2 sections that I had to get off my bike cause there were some really hard rock sections.
    Definatly worth going to ride from Reston, Herndon, Sterling, Ashburn, Leeseburg, and Purceville.

    Directions: From Tysons Corner Rte 7 west. Left on Golf Club Rd

    It's incredibly easy and rather fun. I had to dismount on some parts of the trail because the hairpin turns are complete 180s in less than 10 feet or so. The trail length is roughly .8-.9 on my cyclometer, but I never measured the exact length. It's a great trail to ride to if you live near Ashburn but nothing more than that.

    OK its short but easy and fun! It's a good break off the W&OD. It was easy to get to. We parked at the lot at Cochran Rd. It's just past mile marker 30.5 on the W&0D.

    If you stay on the packed dirt part of the trail,l its slightly less than a mile .92 miles according to my bike computer. But about 1/2 way around you can venture off the trail and go down to the creek. The trail is surrounded by two creeks, hence it's name "Two Creeks Trail", Goose Creek and Sycolin Creek. Right as you enter the trail take a quick detour to the right about 1/8 of a mile down the hill to see the Goose Creek Bridge holding up the W&OD trail. Quite a neet sight. Also while going the 1/2 mile from parking to the trail beginning on the the W&OD stop and look Sycolin Creek bridge. We saw lots of turtles on the rocks and a Goose nesting eggs on the side of the bridge. Lots of nice things about this trail. It's well maintained. I had fun the day I went as it was a lttle muddy as it had rained the day before. LOVE THE MUD!
    If you are into Rock Quarries, they are all around this trail. We stopped on the way and took a few pictures of the GIANT TRUCKS. I'll try to post all the pictures.

    this trail is a short trail that is good to train on. as one person already said it is best if you run a couple of loops at a time. it is just barely difficult enough to punish arrogance and laziness, but not difficult enough to hurt you in the process. if you need cornering work it is okay. * Review edited 3/19/2008* Review edited 3/19/2008* Review edited 3/31/2008

    Don't get your hopes up. It's a nice little trail for a minor work out, but don't ride miles down the W&OD to get to it as you will likely be disappointed. Overall relatively level and prefab by non mountain bikers, not complaining but don't make it a destination.
