Great Falls Hiking

Derrick Pedranti and Hiking - hiking in the fall

Favorite Hiking Trail of Derrick Pedranti

For several years I lived in the Washington, D.C. metro area. I enjoy hiking so I sought after a scenic place to adventure in. I found the hiking trails of Great Falls, Maryland and Virginia. Great falls is an 800-arce park located along the Potomac River. It's one of the most beautiful places around Washington, D.C.

Great Falls offers several hiking trails around the river and most of them include rocky areas and dense vegetation. Some trails are easier than others with the Billy Goat trail being a more challenging option. On the Virginia side of the park there are rapids and waterfalls you can hike to.

In addition to the hiking there are other activities such as biking, picnicking, horseback riding, rock climbing, whitewater rafting and kayaking.

Please check out the Great Falls hiking trails if you are ever travel to the metropolitan D.C. area.
