Fall Colors Hike in Rock Creek Park

This Meetup is past

30 people went


Usually we head out to the mountains but since it is late in the season it might be better if we stay in DC. We will start at 2pm from California Tortilla (look for us inside if you don't see us outside!) near Cleveland Park Metro, then take Melvin Hazen trail from Connecticut ave to Western Ridge trail going north, pass Pierce Mill, hike up to Rock creek park horse center then take couple of side trails back to western ridge trail and then the hiker biker trail to Porter street. Total distance just over five miles. With breaks at Pierce Mill and nature center it should take about 3.5 hours.

After hike we could stop by for coffee and snacks if people wish.
