Great Falls Hike ~ December 22
We'd like to get in a little hike before the holidays and you're invited to join us. We'll hike the Billy Goat Trail loop A on the Maryland side of Great Falls. For a place so close to a major metropolis there is so much …. wild power and natural beauty here as you watch the Potomac force its way through the rocky crags of Great Falls and the narrows just above Mather’s Gorge. On the return leg you can take in the history of the canal.
This is a moderate hike of about 4 miles along the river with some good views. The park offers a number of other trail options should we decide conditions are not good on the Billy Goat. We can retire to a local watering hole for after hike refreshments.
