Wakefield, right next door to Accotink Lake, has some great singletrack. The park does permit night riding on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights. Join MORE on any of their regularly schedule rides.
Wakefield has three distinct trails: The Creek Trail, which runs along Accotink Creek is great for beginner riders. The Racetrack or Power Line trials which weave in and out of the woods along the power lines, and the Bowl, which offers some punchy climbs and technical features are more suited for intermediate riders. In addition, the Cross County Trail makes its way through Wakefield Park. For an extended ride you could do a loop at Wakefield and take the CCT to Laurel Hill.
Wakefield's proximity to the Capital Beltway make it an incredibly popular destination with riders from Northern Virginia looking to escape the nearby gridlock.
