  • Visited Rock Creek Park for the first time in 40 years this past week, and was pleasantly surprised at the sense of history which has been added to and preserved in this park celebrating both an histo...  more »
  • The Park extends from the Potomac near Georgetown, about the Zoo up to Rockville. (Attention drivers: don't accidentally enter one hardly comes out.) From my point of view he is not interesting for tourists, but only as a recreation area for local residents to the cycling and walking.

  • Rock creek is very accessible, is practically in the city, still without a car can be very close in metro. There are various trails, infrastructure for roasting meat, and it is possible to see deer. Certainly a good choice for a picnic or a long walk in the forest. There is an old mill that serves as a Museum, allow entrance to dogs and give you cookies

  • A beautiful place to relax, have a picnic, or a big gathering. The Lake offers fishing and boating opportunities. The Go Ape business offers zip lines and climbing activities. Many picnic tables and shelters. Great Archery range. Many trails and paths to jog or walk. Ample parking. Many playgrounds for the kids and a nice volleyball court.
  • Came here with my boyfriend two days ago. We were hoping for some nice hiking trails and opportunities for photography, but the park is so commercialized that it's impossible. There are people everywhere, and it's impossible to go there and just enjoy nature. If you're looking for some good hikes and pretty views, just go to Patapsco State Park instead.
  • Excellent biking/running trail that connects easily to the broader network around DC. Just keep checking directions because it is easy to get in a side trail or get turned around. For a great bike ride, do the DC line up to Lake Needwood. Be on the lookout though, there are places where the trail gets flodded easily, so there could be deep puddles and mud.
  • A favorite place to hike around the lake. It's beautiful, and usually quiet. You can take advantage of the boat rentals if you like, and they have zip-lining activities, etc.
  • One of the best parks in the area. Beautiful bike trails. Well maintained
