Great Falls National Park

While on my trips to Washington DC, I rarely get out to do much besides grab dinner. However, this trip made it over to Great Falls National Park.

Only $5 to enter the park. This is a unique section of the Potomac River where the river is squeezed down into the narrow Mathers Gorge.

Right before the gorge the Potomac spills over interesting rock formations. The resulting falls are impressive. There are nice trails along the rocky cliffs for viewing the falls.

The cliff walls are also popular for rock climbers. I saw climbing
ropes but no climbers.
