This route isn’t marked and I had to use the AllTrails map the whole time. It doubles back on itself. There are better routes in rock creek park.

Great hike. Started at and parked at the wrong spot, but we figured it out. We had 3 dogs with us. They really enjoyed it. The one negative - the horse poop. It was out of control. If I have to pick up after my puppies, why don’t horse riders have to pick up after their horses?

Great little hour hike with the dog. Had quite a bit or rain earlier in the week, so the trails were damp but not slippery, but the river was high. Mid-morning on a Friday and we had the trails to ourselves.
