Billy Goat Trail – Great Falls, Maryland
Nina has been wanting to do the Billy Goat Trail since 1997. Figured it was time to make the attempt. We started the trail around 1pm and by 2:30pm got to the 40 foot cliff climb. Looked at it and said “nyaah”, turned around and did the fun bouldering part over again. We also visited the overlook of the Great Falls on the Potomac. Very beautiful and interesting hike. Saw a blue heron, mallard ducks, the ubiquitous white tail deers, and lots of colorful trees. Finished up around 5pm which was perfect – just in time for beltway traffic on the way home.
