Billy Goat Trail: Section A Professional Review and Guide

"Section A of the Billy Goat Trail is the most popular and well-known hike in Washington, DC, for good reasons. Its location on the high rocky cliffs above the Potomac River makes it very scenic.

Furthermore, the landscape on both sides of the Potomac River between Great Falls and Carderock is a playscape for adults and big kids, with hiking and scrambling on the Billy Goat Trails, mountain biking on the Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal Towpath, kayaking on the Potomac River, and rock climbing on the cliffs of the Mather Gorge."
