    I rode this https://www.mtbproject.com/trail/7004536 the other night while working in Chantilly. Lots of good Single track.

    Wakefield(Annandale) and Lake Fairfax (Reston) and Meadowood (Lorton) are good places that allow night riding. I do so frequently at Lake Fairfax since it's close to home.

    While loosely enforced, night riding at Lake Fairfax is definitely not legal at all. Everyone once and awhile the park will crack down and everyone in the lot after dark with bike gets a ticket. Just fyi.

    Wakefield is the only legal NR spot in NoVa.

    Wakefield is only open for night riding on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights. Unlike most places, you don't need to join an official group ride to do it.

    Other non-NOVA options for night riding include Patapsco, Gambrill, Rosaryville and Schaeffer, but you need to be on one of the official rides for those and sign a waiver. Check the MORE calendar for a full list.

    Meadowood definitely DOES NOT allow night riding- for now.
