      At 480 acres, Lake Fairfax Park is one of the largest parks managed by Fairfax County Park Authority and hosts a full range of amenities, including the lake and streams for paddling or fishing, a water park, campgrounds, pavilions, athletic fields of all types, not to mention nearly 10 miles of natural surface trail. The trails are rooty and fast with a deceiving amount of elevation. The system has experienced some great additions recently, including a new flow trail that is fast and fun for everyone from beginner to expert riders. In order to access the trails, one can either park at Reston Skate Quest parking lot or at the park itself by the watermine.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Access Info:
      Reston SkateQuest parking lot, 1800 Michael Faraday Ct, Reston
