    Best places to ride in northern Virginia.

    Im takin a trip south to mid-northern Virginia in a week for 3 or 4 days. Lookin for some good xc trails to ride that are in good condition for this time of year. Lookin to stay in a town with some sorta night life and what not as well.
    Rule of thumb- 1 Lb. costs 2 sec. per mile of climb

    If you like it rocky and fairly technical, make the short trip up 15 to Gambrill State Park in MD. It's just outside Frederick, MD - easy to get to.

    Fountainhead is closer to DC and a little farther (geographically) south. It's not technical, but it's fast and decently fun.

    Haven't been to Shaffer yet. Just moved here and waiting for the weather to warm up I hear it's fun, though.

    Depending on how "mid" your mid-northern location really is, Shenandoah might be closer than these other locations.

    If you stop in Charlottsville

    don't miss Observatory Hill or Walnut Creek Park a few miles south of town.

    If you're coming to the charlottesville area, definitely hit Walnut Creek for fun twisty single track. O-Hill is not too bad for some short runs. Good quick pumps basically doing laps up and down the hillsides. I like Sherando/Big Levels a whole lot, which is about 30 minutes from c'ville over by where I live in Shenandoah valley. Other really solid areas within an hour of c'ville are reddish knob, douthat state park, poor farm, and braley pond.
