Rock Creek Park Rock Creek Park is truly a gem in our nation's capital. It offers visitors an opportunity to reflect and soothe their spirits through the beauty of nature. Fresh air, majestic trees, wild animals, the ebb and flow of Rock Creek, and thousands of years of human history emanate the delicate aura of the forest. Rock Creek Park is open during daylight hours.

Fun trail, poorly labelled. We had a great lunch sitting on the rocks by the rapids about a third of the way through (we started from the south). Be sure to check out Pulpit Rock and the views from there! We started on this trail and then walked down Western Ridge at the north point (for about 9mi total).

Nice moderate trail, but very poorly marked. We met several other hikers on our way and no one knew where they were going.

Short, easy loop with a spot to go into the creek. Lots of shade.
