#6 of 300 mountain bike trails in Virginia
#169 in the world

Network of singletrack, solid trail surface and quick flow allows for decent speed. Technical trail options throughout network: whoops, log jumps, downhill berm section, bridges, stream crossings, log and rock piles.
North trails and South trails separated by the Wakefield Park road. North trails are accessible from multiple points on the other side of baseball and soccer fields behind the Audrey Moore RECenter. There is a doubletrack greenway behind the park baseball fields- RIGHT turn(North) will go to Wakefield North Trails along Accotink Creek and access to the "Bowl" section,follow orange and yellow trail blazes.
LEFT(South)on greenway will lead to a tunnel crossing under Braddock Rd and on to the Lake Accotink Network trails.

To access Wakefield South trails, from Audrey Moore RECenter parking lot entrance go left across footbridge and look left for tunnel crossing under Wakefield Park road. South trails are marked with blue trail blazes.

Rider questions

Q: is the trail multi-directional?
A: Yes. However, there is a common way to ride (with the park arrows) that follows the course that PVC's Wednesdays at Wakefield (WAW) Series uses over the Summer. Most group ride classes and local riders familiar with the WAW course tend to ride this direction. However, there is no "correct direction" and most mountain bikers will let you pass no matter which way you are riding. Please note that the "reverse direction" is a tougher ride! ;)

Q: Are the trails free
