Over twice the size of Central Park in NYC and with over 32 miles of official trails -- and many more miles of unofficial ones -- winding through woodlands, fields, and streams, Rock Creek Park is one of the natural jewels of the DC metro area. Yet it is so underutilized, you can sometimes hike for miles without seeing another person.
Our meetup is about getting some exercise in the beautiful outdoors, exploring some lesser-known areas of the park, and getting to meet some like-minded people. Most hikes will be take 1 - 2 hours, will vary in difficulty, will explore different areas of the park, and are aimed at folks who are moderately physically fit. International and U.S. Visitors to DC welcome - a chance to see a local outdoor treasure and meet people in and near DC.
