This hike explores rugged Rock Creek Gorge, located in the extreme northwestern corner of Hamilton County. Start high atop the Cumberland Plateau and descend into the gorge. Detour to Rock Creek Overlook, a vista into the rock-rimmed chasm. Burrow into the lower Rock Creek Gorge on a stony path to the bottomland and creek. From there, ascend to the high country and then take a spur to Leggett Point Overlook, where you can soak in more views of Rock Creek Gorge. From the overlook it’s a short distance to the trailhead.
