Rock Creek


One of the best hikes in the Sierras. Most of the trail follows the banks of Rock Creek.  There are plenty of flowers and greenery in the early Summer. Bring bug repellent as the creek attracts lots of mosquitoes. The parking lot gets quite full in the peak season so come early in the morning. This a great family hike.
