Mostly flat with some short ups and downs on the trail.


Almost entirely bike paths, a few miles on Beach Drive in DC where the path disappears and in Maryland where the road is wider with less traffic.  The Rock Creek trail is prone to bumps and flooding as well as sharp curves, descents and ascents - donít expect to hurry.  Enjoy the quiet and lack of traffic through the woods and along the stream.
