    Pump tracks in NOVA (near Wakefield)?

    Used to live near Wakefield Park, and will be back in town this spring for a few weeks. I was wondering if there were pump tracks nearby, or just where in NOVA they were generally. I'm a total beginner on the pump track stuff, so anything will do. Appreciate any help finding one in advance!

    Also - might there be one at Fountainhead? That's a bit more of a haul for me, but totally doable.

    The only pump track in NoVA is at the Freedom Center out in Leesburg, but I'm not sure of when it opens/closes for the public. Unless someone has a private track in VA, all the rest are in MD.

    495 Jumps are on the right about a mile north of Wakefield off the CCT just past an open field on the right.

    Go ride Meadowood Recreation Area in Lorton; its like 15 minutes away from Wakefield. Maybe 20. Anyway, it has skills trail about half way round the main loop that is very much like a pumptrack with jumps, tabletops and berms. I haven't been out there in a couple months; I imagine its pretty muddy right now. Might want to wait until things dry out.

    Same question about pump tracks are there any new ones and are the ones spoke of above still open and good to ride? I am a long time XC rider racer but would like to try a pump track. I have a Trek 2016 Remedy 29r that I would like to try.
    I live in Chantilly, Va.
    Thank you.

    MORE just announced on Facebook that they've hired a contractor to build a new pumptrack at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston, and Trails for Youth has been working with Fairfax County to build a small, kid-friendly one off the Cross County Trail in Springfield: Brookfield Park Master Plan Amendment*- Fairfax County, Virginia

    Not immediately helpful, but by this time next year there should be two solid tracks near good trail!
