This hike was better than expected. Some parts were a little bit strenuous but it was an overall easy hike. We took the Western Ridge & Valley Trail.

Everyone loves rock creek because it is in DC and easy to get to. However, the trails are nothing special. For a park visited by so many people, the trail markers are poorly done. It is very easy to get confused.

I love the Rock Creek trails. Somewhat difficult to find due to gate closures. But well worth the hassle. The streams that run parallel to the trail offer the perfect nature oasis. Terrain is hilly in some parts and flat in others. Quiet and peaceful with an occasional horse or two that will pass. My fav trail in DC.

Parked at the Nature Center and took the West Ridge Trail to the Washington Zoo. Just a little over 3 miles one way. The zoo is free but the parking is $22 a car. If you don't mind walking, park free in the park.
