Walked back from the dog sled demo to the Visitor Centre on this trail. Another well marked trail, easy to walk although there were some up hill areas.

It's a nice and refreshing trail within the city. To my amazement, while in the trail, you don't feel like you are so close to the city. You can easily spend 4-5 hours around it. At some places, you feel isolated from everything but really...More

Rock creek park is the perfect nearby getaway to connect with nature. If you don't have time to travel outside DC and MD area, this is the place you go to. You won't even feel you are in the city.

Since you spend most of your time in Denali on a bus, it was nice to get out on the trail. Great mushrooms, nice birch trees with moose rubs on them, a few nice views. Not spectacular and we didn't see Rock Creek, but a...More

Easy but nice trail. Uneven footing and narrow in some spots. We passed 10 people going the opposite way. We carried bear spray and wore bells mostly because we saw a few bears from the bus the day before. Seemed a small task to ensure...More

Definitely the best excursion whilst in the park. We had a 3.5 hour interpretive walk with Landon. He was very knowledgable and a great guide. He knew the area very well. We had an older person on the walk with us and he was able...More

Park Rangers told us that this is a scenic trail but did not find anything scenic about it. Waste of time.
