Description

This wonderful trail runs along Rock Creek up to the Maryland border but don't be fooled by the word "valley" in its name. The trail has plenty of elevation change as it twists and turns alongside the river.

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