Description

The woods between the Wakefield / Accotink Loop Trail and the Accotink Train Trail is a maze of mountain biking and hiking trails. This route takes turns that trend towards the lake, but there are many other trails in this area. It can be combined with the Accotink Train Trail and the Boy Scout Trail for a decent loop trail that stays almost entirely in the woods.

There are several access points onto the Accotink Loop Trail and places where the MTB trails cross the Accotink Train Trail. There are a couple of creeks to cross on rocks or logs.

Trail has several steep sections, fallen trees to jump over, lots of roots and rocks. It gets pretty muddy and slippery in places after rain or snow.

The main advantage is the low number of people compared to the Wakefield / Accotink Loop Trail along with being in the woods away from houses and road noise.
