A collaborative project between MORE and NOVA Parks

Originally conceived by a band of riders from MORE in early 1994, and redesigned with the International Mountain Biking Organization (IMBA) in 2010–2012, the new Fountainhead Trail is challenging, fun, and an incredibly rewarding system of trails.

The once straight and steep climbs and downhills that crossed the park have been replaced with challenging switchbacks and screaming berms. Fountainhead is a glorious playground in which to take your mountain-biking skills to the next level.



Donations made directly through this page go directly to the selected trails system and help MORE and its trail liaisons purchase materials, tools and hire the expertise necessary to help us maintain and sustain world class trails in the Washington DC Metropolitan region.

$10 Minimum Donation. Please change the quantity to increase your donation.

Fountainhead is a stacked trail system and includes trails for all ability levels. That said, beginners should use extreme caution, even in the beginner green loop. The blue and black loops are suitable for riders of intermediate and advanced abilities respectively. MORE subscribes to IMBA's trail difficulty ratings

MORE Volunteers donated 90 hours of their time during 2018 to help maintain the trails at Fountainhead Regional Park.
