Need to Know
No parking fees, nearest restrooms are located on Hwy 64 at the whitewater center.
About 90% of the trail has good footing. The path is fairly wide but it does tend to have a slope so watch out for ankle fatigue.
Rock Creek Trail goes from Hwy 64 to the Benton McKaye Trail. You can run it one way and then turn around and come back, or take the BMT back down to Hwy 64 for a loop. The climbs and descents are moderate and you can really get into a rhythm. There is a little cell phone signal on the verizon network. There are a few minor creek crossing. Roughly 90% of the trail has no obstacles but there are a few places where rocks are present. Beware in the fall when the leaves have fallen as you might not be able to see obstacles covered with leaves. The trail isn't very well marked but I did not have any troubles seeing where the trail was going.
Flora & Fauna
Rhododendron, evergreens, deciduous trees.
