      Fountainhead Regional Park is a challenging mountain biking destination trail in Fairfax County Virginia managed by Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority (NVRPA). Established in 1994 by cooperation between Mid Atlantic Off Road Enthusiasts (MORE) and NVRPA with volunteer labor and funding from Recreational Trails Program (RTP). Fountainhead is a stacked loop set of trails using Green, Blue and Black designations indicating level of difficulty. The Green loop includes rooty flow trails, bridges and 12" drops. The Blue loop includes rooty flow trails, bridges, drops and wooden technical trail features. The Black loop adds advanced expert only rock features in a tight twisty terrain with 4' drops. The entrance to the Black look is a qualifier for riding the Black loop. Please respect the trails by riding the tread or walking if uncomfortable with the terrain. Visit The Fountainhead Project website for a complete history and details of the project to improve sustainability and enhance the riding experience.
