    Mountwood,lookout mt or douthat

    Looking for recommendations between these three trail systems for a weekend trip out of D.C. We already plan to spend one weekend in big bear lake.
    Any recommendations or thoughts?

    Douthat has been closed due to a bear attack. You may want to check on that before planning on that one.

    Lookout leaves you a lot of options. You're just a couple pedal strokes from Narrowback there as well.

    My vote is for Lookout. As said above you also have Narrowback close by. And if you drive over towards Harrisonburg, there is Massanutten which has some great riding.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    Another lookout vote. Stokesville puts you in close proximity to TONS of riding opportunities. Reddish knob, Dowells, Narrowback, and the list goes on...

    I have ridden at most of the locations on your list. If your looking for fast, smooth, flow with moderate elevation, head to Mountwood. If you want rock, tech, gnar and all the climbing you want, head to Virginia. As others have stated, plenty of options around GWNF with days of riding. Mountwood has approx. 30 miles that can be ridden in one day.
