Write Up:
This 8 mile easy loop hike through Rock Creek Park was a great, easy way to get out and enjoy the company of other MOC hikers. Rock Creek Park offers the opportunity to reflect and soothe your spirits through the beauty of nature. Fresh air, majestic trees, wild animals, and the ebb and flow of Rock Creek emanate the delicate aura of the forest. We stopped for lunch at noon, where there happened to be a close-by covered picnic shelter. The highlight of the hike included a slightly off-path start because of a misunderstanding of the description route...but soon we were back on track and that ended up being our only delay of the day.
