"As far back as 1866, people recognized Rock Creek’s natural beauty and fought to protect it. It would be another quarter century before an actual park came into being. Long, narrow, and heavily wooded, this 10-mile-long park is a twisty green stripe through a sea of urbanism. It is also a magnet for hikers, joggers, horseback riders, and others.
