"Section C of the Billy Goat Trail sits in the shadows of its sister trails up the Potomac River. While Section A on Bear Island is the most popular hike in Washington, DC, Section C at Carderock offers captivating scenery in forested slopes along the river. It provides kids younger than eight an opportunity to hike and play among the metamorphic rock outcrops along the trail. You may also see rock climbers using the rock faces as a playground. The trailhead is adjacent to the large sign and restroom." Read more
