Rock Creek Park

Join a rugged off-road hike in the heart of the city that explores “wild” Washington.


Begin at the bustling commercial heart of D.C.’s Cleveland Park neighborhood, then quickly descend a small stream valley into the heart of Rock Creek Park. That’s when both the

natural and historic features of this magnificent natural landscape will become evident, including infrastructure that predates the establishment of Rock Creek Park itself.


Why does Rock Creek Park exist? Did someone create it? What different areas comprise the park?  Discover answers to these questions (and more) during this invigorating 3.5-mile excursion.


Led by Brian
