Fountainhead Regional Park has one of the best trail systems in the northern Virginia area. The green loop is enjoyable, with berms, tabletops, bridges, as well as more natural features like exposed rocks and roots. It connects to the blue loop and doubles as an access back to the main parking lot.

       Easily one of the most fun and well built greenbelt trails in the area. Great for all ability levels and the small berms and rollers are still fun for even experts.
