River Description

Rock Creek is a beautiful flashy mountain stream that falls steeply off the eastern flank of Mount Mitchell and gradually mellows from steep Class V to nice Class II-III. Hike the trail up river right until the trail fizzles out and put on, unless you want to bushwhack farther. Rock Creek gets harder and steeper the farther you hike. Expect pristine water quality and steep rapids tumbling through massive boulders and old growth forest in a remote nook of the Black Mountains.
