An easy loop hike. This multipurpose project is owned and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and is located on the North Branch of our nation’s river, the Potomac. Jennings Randolph Lake was designed to improve the water quality of the river downstream of the dam, to reduce flood damage, and to provide a source of water supply for municipalities and industry downstream.
The project also affords the public the opportunities for recreation such as white-water rafting, fishing, boating, camping, hiking, and sight-seeing. The Jennings Randolph Lake Visitor Center has on display the unique waffle rock. Special attractions: A beautifully reclaimed quarry, hiking through an upland hardwood forest, and a great view at the Sunset Trail Overlook.
