Planning to do this loop with the Arlington Loop on Sat.

Any notes on this loop? Did it go smoothly?
Are you not allowed to ride on Beach Dr south of Blagden/Tilden or did you just choose not to ride on it? From what I know you can ride it if you choose.

Yeah, I had meant to write some notes but forgot. Btw, it was your earlier comment that inspired me to try this. The loop is nice, no major issues, though the lower rock creek trail section was somewhat narrow and crowded with foot traffic.

I was sort of going with the flow, following the path, and didn't notice any earlier obvious place to jump onto Beach Dr. From what I remember I think it would have been ok if I had wanted to.

Yea. I have ridden that path before and it can be crowded on a nice day and really hinder efficient bike travel. I believe it also has some gravel/dirt sections.

We'll be doing this early Sat if we do it. Probably won't be many people on the road then. Plus I was planning to go out CCT and come back down Rock Creek. Will be able to keep with the flow of traffic much easier going down hill.

Thanks for the feedback.
