Billy Goat Trail "A" Hike (Great Falls, Maryland)

BILLY GOAT TRAIL "A" HIKE!

Come enjoy the great outdoors and hike the Billy Goat Trail "A". The trail has a little bit of everything; bouldering, sandy beaches, a forest, and scenic views of the river. This is a great opportunity to meet people, get some exercise and fresh air, and hopefully visit a place you may not be familiar with.

On the way to the trail-head we can stop at the overlook that crosses over the rapids and waterfalls (where Great Falls gets its name). It's definitely worth a look if you've never seen it before.

I can offer rides to anybody in the Rockville area. I'm near the Twinbrook Metro stop (15 minute walk to my house) on the Red Line if anybody would want to catch a ride with me that way.

--- MEETUP INFORMATION ---

CAR: This is the best way to get to the park. If you don't have a ride, please leave a comment below. If you are able to offer rides, please also leave a comment. I can offer rides for two people in my car (I'm near the Twinbrook metro stop on the red line).

INFO: Park entry is $5 per vehicle. We will meet at the concession stand right next to the parking lot. I plan on starting the hike promptly at 1:15 pm, so please do your best not to be late.

CONTACT: My phone number is (301) 758-1144. Please do not hesitate to text or call me with questions.

REMINDER - THIS IS THE MARYLAND SIDE OF THE PARK.

      Yep, we are still hiking. It's a 30% all day for isolated t-storms. We'll just have to take a chance they won't hit us.
