Join us for an afternoon hike along the Rock Creek starting from Cleveland Park metro station. We will in front of the California Tortilla restaurant in the small strip mall near the entrance to the metro station. You can grab a lunch there or just wait outside.

The first half of the hike will be strenuous. The second half will be moderate. Total distance will be 7.5 miles and total climb about 1000 feet. We will be basically on both sides of the valley carved by the rock creek, going up on the valley trail and coming back on an un-named trail on the west side of the valley, passing Pierce mansion, Pierce mill, Miller cabin and Milkhouse ford along the way. We should be back at the Cleveland park metro station by 7.30 pm.

Please bring enough water (at least a quart) and some trail mix for the way. There are restrooms and water fountains near Pierce mill near the start of the hike and then near Miller cabin about 3.5 miles into the hike.

Leashed dogs are okay (National park service rules)

We could go for dinner after hike in a restaurant near the Cleveland park metro station.
