Fun day today. Rode the skate parkas well.
I had fun and I Road 20 miles on PCT Trail
It was a good trial and I want to do it again
very pretty, especially in the fall... idk how far I went tho so can't say I've done the whole trail
Hard to find at first but rider directed me past the rec center to get on the trail. Directionals weren't that great, but trail was nice once you got going. Couldn't find waterfall like pic, but will go back to explore more.
Hiked from Wakefield Park to Audrey Moore Rec Ctr. Going south the first part is very flat, rural with bridges and stream. The second can be in the woods or along the service road, which is less interesting.
Wakefield Park is also a good place to catch the Cross County Trail along Accotink Creek. The trail goes all the way to Great Falls although the few miles from Wakefield Park are what I hiked. The creek restoration is underway which should make the trout happy and the trail is a mix of dirt and gravel and then pavement. There is the dull roar of the highway which takes away from the wilderness setting but this is otherwise a very pleasant place for a walk.
Great trail for beginners. Would definitely go back again.
This was my buddy and my first ever mountain biking excursion and it was very enjoyable. The trail was great to learn on and we will definitely be back. It was difficult the first ever run, but the 2nd time we attempted it, we had already improved. I would definitely recommend that those trying out mountain biking for the first or first few times, to try out the Wakefield trail!
My only negative comment is that it took us a little while to figure out where to go, we did end up finding the trails, but we wasted about 30-40 minutes looking for it.
It was pretty fun has a lot of different trails a little bit for everyone, when you go look for the 495 jumps. The mud was definitely a lot of fun
