Billy Goat Trail Section A

  • February 21, 2010 · 10:00 AM
  • Billy Goat Trail Across from Old Angler's Inn

All aboard for the Billy Goat Hike! We did the Virginia side of Great Falls/Mather Gorge last weekend, so doing the MD side this weekend before the snow melts and the crowds return! The trail is open and the C&O Canal has been cleared according to the National Park Service so get out and enjoy a beautiful day with great sights to one of our most scenic local attractions without the crowds you normally get at Great Falls! I am scheduling this hike earlier in the day to avoid wet snow from the warmer temps forecast for Sunday but with clear skies! Please come prepared to walk in wet snow...good boots and socks and layers up top with gaiters if you have them! Optional post hike meal as always! The pic is Great Falls from last weekend! Please note the National Park does not allow furry friends on Billy Goat Section A. Trail description and directions can be found here: http://www.midatlanti...

    Most people were from Europe and very experienced hikers and a lot of fun to be outdoors with. We did the Gold Mine Loop going out to Great Falls, then Billy Goat on the way back to the cars, which made for a diverse and most enjoyable day hike!
