Steep Creek Falls is easy to spot along Rock Creek, as there’s a prominent bridge right at the falls so you can’t help but notice it. For most people Steep Creek Falls is the only obvious spot they might know about up Rock Creek, but Curious Gorge knows far more secrets up Rock Creek than just Steep Creek Falls.
Steep Creek Falls dries-up to just a trickle by mid-summer, but it spits off a lip onto the base of a pebbled beach of sorts. The Falls gets good late-afternoon sun, making it a nice spot for happy hour. Stand behind the falls to drink a beer or maybe share a kiss!
