Calling all rock scramble fans-this is your hike! Let’s spend Presidents Day at Great Falls National Park. We’ll hike several of the trails that loop off of the C & O canal trail. We will do Billy Goat trails A, B and C, as well as the overlook spur trail. Billy Goat A offers some super fun rock scrambling and gorgeous views from a cliff high above the whitewater flowing through Mather Gorge.

Optional stop after the hike for food/drinks/fellowship.

The return time is approximate.  If you have plans that require you to be back in Richmond at a specific time, please communicate this prior to carpooling with someone, or consider choosing a different hike.
