Rock Creek Off-trail

A 12:30 PM phone call from TC to meet Varners at Rock Creek upper trailhead for an off-trail hike turned what would have otherwise been the typical boring Sunday into a fun day. Weather was ideal for hiking. From the upper trailhead, we hiked down the upper loop trail to the first footbridge where we left the trail and followed the wet weather creek to where it intersects the lower loop trail. I regretted not having my camera. Hiking down the steep incline along this creek provided many photo opportunities. After reaching the lower loop trail, we hiked over to the spot on Rock Creek where we usually stop for a break but high water level prevented us from gaining access. A return trip to upper trailhead via the upper loop trail completed the hike.
