List of trails?

I was hoping this would be in a sticky on this forum.

Does anyone know of a good list of trails either nationally (USA) or in Virginia? I'm in Virginia Beach right now, and I'm looking for some trails to ride. I normally ride on the road (main bike is an old fixed gear conversion) but I'm looking to try a bit of off-road riding, and I'm not really sure where to go.

Try this site. When you ride leave a review. I've tried to add trails but that doesn't seem to work.

The closest thing to VA-Beach any good for trail riding is Newport News.

Newport News:
1. Harwood Mills - on Old Denbiegh Blvd
2. Behind RiverSide Hospital, across from Mariners Museum, has some trails that are re-opened after being restricted for many years.

Williamsburg: Waller Mill “dogwood trail” - take the camp perry exit
There are several trails near the college
York River State Park: a few trails that are very good!

I know the trip might be a couple of hours, however, Fountainhead is the best place in northern virginia. Well, at the least, coming from a newbie.

If you go you are in for some fun, and an 8 mile track. Take a map so you can switch it up. There are alternate routes and trails that link.
