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

BILLY GOAT TRAIL "A" HIKE!

Spring has sprung and it's time for the first hike of the season!

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 Bethesda area and I'm near the Medical Center Metro stop 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 Medical Center 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 1:45 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.

    If anybody is still in need of a ride, I have one spot left in my car. You would have to meet me at my house, which is an 8 minute walk from the Medical Center Metro stop on the Red Line, at 12:45 pm. I can give you my address via text.

      Hi Renu, I know it's pretty far up the red line, but I could pick you up from Forest Glen if you need a ride. I'll be traveling down from I-495 and pass right by Forest Glen. Message me for my number if you are interested.

    I'm Kensington-Aspen Hill-ish if anyone needs a ride. I can scoop someone up in that area or somewhere along the way.

    I will need a ride, if anyone would be so kind. I live in Tenleytown, but can take the metro to get closer to anyone willing to help. And of course, I'll contribute a couple bucks towards park entry.

    I'll be driving from Rockville (across the street from the Shady Grove Metro station) if anyone needs a ride or carpool, but can only fit one comfortably.
