Rock Creek Trail

  Once we left the starting point, we did not see any trail markings or info. about the trail. We hiked for almost two hours and the trail had no signs of circling back to the trail head so we turned around and returned via the same route. Should have info. signs telling hikers that you have traveled x number of miles and you have x number of miles to travel to reach the starting point.
Says Bill Brophy

This part of Tennessee is always a pleasure
    to visit during hiking season. In the Great Smoky Mountains you'll find lots of hiking trails, there's no better way to enjoy these mountains. Pretty far from Cleveland you find Rock Creek Trail but there's great natural beauty awaiting
you along it.
Finally, hiking time is here again, and Rock Creek Trail in Polk County, Tennessee is just the place. Camping is available at Cuddle Up Cabin Rentals; since you're here, you could pop by Laurel Branch. Yeah, come up here to the Great Smoky Mountains for a magnificent time. Why not camp at Black Bear Cove while you're here at Rock Creek Trail. Whitewater Outfitter - Ocoee Adventure Center has a good whitewater paddling spot nearby, and a day
at delightful Parksville Beach close to Rock Creek Trail is a delightful thing to do. At Rock Creek Trail you always meet someone from Ducktown. A trip to Rock Creek Trail wouldn’t be complete without a spree to close by Hiwassee/Ocoee Scenic River State Park, and naturally Wildcat Creek flows through this vicinity.
