Description

Rock Creek Trail goes from Hwy 64 to the Benton McKaye Trail. You can hike it one way and then turn around and come back, or take the BMT back down to Hwy 64 for a loop. The climbs and descents are moderate and you can really get into a rhythm. There is a little cell phone signal on the verizon network. There are a few minor creek crossing. Roughly 90% of the trail has no obstacles but there are a few places where rocks are present. Beware in the fall when the leaves have fallen as you might not be able to see obstacles covered with leaves. The trail isn't very well marked but I did not have any troubles seeing where the trail was going.

Flora & Fauna

Rhododendron, evergreens, deciduous trees.
