Billy Goat Trail, Great Falls MD

Billy Goat Trail, Great Falls MD: 03 Jun, 2013 (5 miles)

It felt like a day I had to get out and wander somewhere I could hear the flowing water. So I set out to Chain Bridge, on N. Glebe Rd. Unfortunately all the parking lots were taken so I decided to drive toward Great Falls. Found a parking near Old Angler's Inn and started hiking. The temperature was a tolerable 75 with a breeze blowing. I went to see the Great Falls. Enchanting as always. On the way back I got off the CNO canal trail to take the Billy Goat trail. This is nice rocky trail that hugs the steep edges of the Potomac. Lovely. It was a nice peaceful walk.
