Description

This wonderful trail runs along Rock Creek up to the Maryland border for about 5.6 Miles, but dont be fooled by the word Valley in its name. The trail has plenty of elevation change as it twists and turns along side the river.

Contrary to the Western Ridge Trail, the Valley Trail path is a bit more rugged. Watch your footing for rocks, roots and narrow passages. While youll find fewer runners along the Valley trail, this is probably the most popular running trail in the park, and a great place to see wildlife like deer and black snakes.
