Milkhouse Ford had long been used as a place for wagons and horses to traverse Rock Creek. First paved in 1904, people used to drive through the creek—a major thoroughfare at one time—until the 1990s. The ford is still used by equestrians when conditions permit.

For health and safety reasons, swimming and wading in Rock Creek is prohibited.
