Trail Description: The Billy Goat Trail is a 4.7-mile (7.6 km) hiking trail that follows a path between the C&O Canal and the Potomac River within the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park near Great Falls in Montgomery County, Maryland. It is one of the most popular hike trails in the Greater Washington Area. The trail has three sections: Section A, the northernmost, is 1.7 miles (2.7 km); Section B is 1.4 miles (2.3 km); and Section C, the southernmost, is 1.6 miles (2.6 km). Section A traverses rough and rocky terrain, including a steep climb along a cliff face along the Potomac River's Mather Gorge. At another point in the trail, hikers are required to scramble over and around huge boulders, but it is a lot of fun! Sections B is less strenuous, and requires only one brief scramble.
Parking: We will meet at the parking lot closest to Great Falls Tavern Visitor Center which can be accessed at 11710 MacArthur Blvd., Potomac, MD 20854. There is a $5 fee per car.We look forward to seeing you all there!
