Came on a Monday in November. No crowds, absolutely gorgeous.
Good view from everywhere. You can see another state at another side of the river.
Billy Goat trail is a great hike if you are up for it.
We had enjoyed a lots..really nice place to explore the nature.
Really liked the Billy Goat Trail. Try it!
Beware copperhead snakes. Easy to avoid but be careful.
This park is the best! Obey the signs please. Do not drown. We live near the park and hear the sirens way too often.
Amazing views of the waterfall depending on how far you go hiking!
5$ per vehicle good for 3 visits.
Best place to snap a sunrise shot of the falls is the Virginia side! Such gorgeous nature so close to civilization!
Check the traffic on weekends! We spent 40 minutes at the entrance on Saturday.
Check out the high water marks! Great hiking year round.
Great place for a barbecue with friends. Grills are avaliable. Park closes at sundown
Great place to hike and bring parents when they're in town. Beautiful water falls.
The trails are nice and the waterfalls are really awesome, did not expect to see this breathtaking view!
Best outdoor free rock climbing
Beautiful scenery, very relaxing. It's hard to believe that such a beautiful place is so close to the city areas.
Absolutely gorgeous place, biking from Georgetown makes for a perfect day trip.
The views from any overlook you choose is simply amazing !
Very beautiful views! Only five bucks to get in.
The worst traffic set up...more time spent in the car getting into the park than in the park.
The river trail 👌
Amazing park, a spiritual oasis between dc and baltimore!
Perfect place for hiking and/or relaxing...go early...$5 for entrance and cash is quicker...Instead bringing lunch try BBQ, it is more fun...restrooms are miserable but who cares.
You might as well get a year-long parking pass. It's $20, and goes to a good cause! You'll get your money's worth in 4 visits.
Don't use the restroom
A pleasant riverside stroll, a bit populated on the weekends, but still good times
For my oldest son's bar mitzvah, went hikeing the billy goat trail. Hired two guides (John Fishback is one.) Special back packs with their lunch/water provided. Bussed all from hotel to BG-location.

welcome in TravelPlanner -
You gotta go there man,if i come there man :P
A must see!
Make sure you bring a bike lock if you're going to want to see the falls
Incredibly beautiful park ~20min from downtown Arlington. Busy, but great trails lining the river which are not to be missed. ~1.5-2hr for a hike along the water, looping back to the Visitor Center
The best trails... And a beautiful place for a nice long walk or bike ride
Fun for hiking and a picnic! Gorgeous views
On a beautiful today like today, go early, otherwise you'll be in line forever. Also if you want to grill, the earlier the better.
Great trip with lovely scenery & nature
For $5 bucks you have great trails and beautiful views
There are several trails. Choose one according to difficulty and scenery. Remember you also have to hike it back.
Wonderful trail to hike on. Plenty of opportunistic areas to hike, fish, or kayak on. Great people surrounded by the wonderful wildlife. Careful of copperheads while rock climbing though.
Beautiful, no crowds around sunset.
