GREAT FALLS





All Photos 7.11.2017

Great Falls on the upper Potomac offers park areas on both the Maryland and Virginia sides of the river and they are equally beautiful.  Tumbling falls ... gentle pools of water form small restful lakes among rock formations.  There are easy and extremely challenging hiking trails within the surrounding woodlands.  Now, a walking path ... once a tow path, runs alongside the old C & O canal with many locks where once boats ferried goods from Harper's Ferry south to Washington, DC.  Picnic areas are plentiful, some historical markers dot the landscape.  All in all, a beautiful place.
