Rock Creek Trail ist ein 10.6 Meilen langer, moderat besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Copperhill, Tennessee. Er führt entlang eines Flusses, durch schönen Wald und es gibt oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als moderat einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und gejoggt werden. Hunde sind erlaubt, müssen allerdings an der Leine gehalten werden.

There was a lot of thorny vines all over the path and woods. When you pick left or right walking on the trail there is a sign pointing left for the trail but it was going into what looked like a dried ravine and wasn’t as clear a path as the forward party that Was to the right of it. We Went to the right and it climbed up and we enjoyed the path but eventually the path disappeared and we decided it wasn’t a true path. Eventually it climbs so high and there’s no where to go and to cut to the left to try to join the true path is impossible because it was too steep. We turned around. There were other hikers with three unleashed dogs, one being a pit and the other two I was unsure of and there were growling and snarling at us with in attack mode so we didn’t get a chance to explore the other/true trail. We had to use our hiking sticks to defend ourselves until the owners grabbed the dogs. The owners held their collars but had no leashes for the dogs and we didn’t feel safe after that. So we cut our trip short. Have low stars because the off-shooting of the side trail and both paths being not very well maintained. Also for inconsiderate dog owners which funnier our hike in the end. Beautiful Forest though ! Would come back without children if I stayed in the area longer.

Today we did the paved paths along the river bed and some of the Old Copper Road trail. This area is so well taken care of, we really enjoyed it!

We did the Rhododendron Trail. It was nice and easy with clear paths but lots of road noise and not as low on the creek bed as I had hoped.

Took the doggo out for a Sunday stroll. The woods smell and look like spring! Saw beautiful wildflowers within the first mile even. Several blowdowns from the weekend storms but nothing impassable. The trail itself looked like it had just been maintained - not overgrown at all and very easy to follow. Got a bit sunny and hot hiking up, but the wind kept us cool enough. No water sources once you start climbing until you come back down - beautiful shallow creek crossing made a perfect snack spot. The rhododendron tunnels were beautiful as always. Saw several cleared primitive camp spots along the river after the main crossing, between mile 4-5. No wildlife sightings but the dog investigated plenty of scat so it was around. Really enjoyed the rhododendron trail - don't get off too soon at the first bridge like I did. Take it all the way to the Whitewater Center. Not bad finishing up on the highway- wide paved shoulder made it easy.

This is a loop trail but you do have to walk on the side of Highway 64 for a little ways. If you go during the week or non-busy hiking season you will be the only one on the trail. There are also white blaze markers along the Rock Creek portion but they are old and some are gone due to age or the tree rotted. There are a lot of trees down due to the tornadoes in the area this year so there is a lot of climbing over dead falls, which is fun but have to be careful to not lose the trail in a couple of them. Usually the trail is very easy to follow but its getting more difficult which is also good. We had bear activity when we hiked but not any problems with them. Once at the intersection of the Dry Pond Lead trail on the way to Highway 64 the blaze makers are very easy to find. They are white and diamond shaped. Still one of my funnest day hikes. Mostly because of no people.

The parking area right off HWY 64 is rather limited and if there are other cars in the lot could be difficult to maneuver in. Someone thought the parking area was their personal dump and left a large pile of trash, which of course was pilfered through by animals. The trail drops off for the first 1/2 mile along Laurel Creek and then begins a steady ascend for the next several miles into the Little Frog Wilderness Area. Because it is a Wilderness Area there are no trail markings, however, the trail is very easy to follow. After the gap, the trail descends a bit rapidly to Rock Creek. It follows along Rock Creek for about a 1/2 mile and makes a nice place to stop for a snack. If you are looking for a creek hike there are plenty around that offer creeks as nice or nicer without the 3 mile climb through the mountains. We continued up the trail to the intersection with the BMT and followed that back down to Ocoee Dam Three. We crossed the HWY and picked up Rhododendron Trail #332 back over to the Ocoee Whitewater Center. The only downside to this route was we had to walk the last 1/2 mile or so on the HWY back to the Rock Creek Trailhead
