Overview

A lap-able loop connecting three individual loop trails at Cabin John Regional Park. This is a good option for newer riders or a nice lap after work.

Description

This loop connects to the Cabin John Trail near Goya Dr at an obvious stream crossing. The trail climbs the small hills next to I-270 and goes around the Robert C. McDonnel Campground starting at the Campground Loop Trail, heading to the Highway Loop Trail, before ending at the Kidney Bean Loop Trail where the Cabin John Trail crosses Tuckerman La.

Looking from Cabin John Trail at the unmarked/old brown trail. Hopefully this will get officially blazed in this year.  Real fun loop, accessed after a wet stream crossing just before the bridge near Goya Drive.  About two miles to loop down to Tuckerman Ln. Tree's have hidden the trail a bit!

Upper/Northern most part of Kidney Bean trail, right before some fun banked turns and a jump.
