A nice little hike for the area! Not strenuous in any way, flat terrain with the creek for viewing. My dog loved playing in the water so that’s always a plus!

Furnace Run Rock Creek is really only shown as Rock Creek Run. Per the Metroparks, Furnace Run is also Old Mill Trail, which was nice because you can get more miles in.

There isn't much elevation change and there are two loops that make a figure-8, which together ended up being a bit over 2.5 miles. It was a little slick today due to the warm-up and melting ice, so have good boots or poles for safety if you come soon.

Definitely easy but not paved. You could up the challenge by going off course or moving cut logs around. Two one mile loops in a figure eight. Very peaceful and enjoyable. I go about 12 times a year.
