Description

A beautiful creek and a gradual, graded climb makes this the perfect family outing. Four wet creek crossings and two nice waterfalls makes this perfect for a hot summer day. Once you return to the trailhead, take a dip in the swimming hole at Rock Creek Campground.

Short Run: Park in Rock Creek Recreation Area and access the falls via the Rock Creek Falls Trail.
