Overview

Not just a park in the city, but a kind of leisurely museum, with a scattering of Civil War forts, a cemetery and a 19th-century mill within its bounds.

I've been walking this wonderful park again and again, just can't get enough. Follow the road or climb the trails, put your feet in the creek when they get to hot. It's a magic place and some parts are really very high and steep. It...More

I spent a summer near Dupont Circle, and I really enjoyed running up to Rock Creek Park. What a really neat park right within the municipal area of Washington, DC. It offers miles of hiking or running trails, picnic areas, and a nature exhibit center....More

There are bike and walking trail. You feel like you are in a park HOWEVER this is as a commuter route through the park and can be very noisy.

Awesome trails and bike routes in the park, feels like you are outside of DC. Especially nice in the fall.

I loved to drive to and from work through Rock Creek Park. Though the scenery is ordinary and the Park is pretty narrow as you get near downtown, driving through there is a relief from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Then, in...More

A nice long park stretching from Maryland into Washington, D. C. Great for getting a little exercise for a few hours in a forested setting with some historical sites.

Fun and funky place with lots of activity. Insiders will be working with the horses but it appears that interested outsiders with respect for the animals can experience the presence of very special animals (as long as it does not get "discovered."
