With a forecast of rain at 50% we figured we'd take a chance. Got to the Ballantine TH at 7:20 and started hiking by 7:30. Lot's of water running in both Camp Creek and Pine Creek so we figured the same would be true for Rock Creek and running it was. Encountered a lot of catclaw during the off-trail hiking and it did wear after a bit. My legs were so scratched up that they almost became numb. Spooked a pair of deer near the corral. The rain started so we figured it was time to head back to the truck. Rained for about 30-40 minutes, just enough to wet the trail. Really enjoyed this outing.
