Today we hiked this trail and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Hats off to the NPS for having fully stocked the trail map holder located by the door of the Rock Creek Nature Center (RCNC) - despite the RCNC remaining closed due to the ongoing government shutdown

Parking is plentiful and the trailhead is perhaps 40-50’ directly in front of the RCNC doorway. (This trailhead will take you in a counter-clockwise direction w/ the trail finishing adjacent to the horse stable and then up through the parking area.). My iPhone’s GPS was needed to ensure proper trail tracking and the trail was overly muddy in certain places - to be expected at this time of year. Very slight trail deviations were therefore desired and easily done. Some of the trail is shared w/ equestrian riders and today there were several runners w/ only a few other hikers (some w/ leashed dogs) sharing this trail. Beautiful trail!
