About the Event

$5. Long hike: 11 mi. Moderate hike: 7½ mi. Both with moderate elevation changesable.

Post-Thanksgiving exercise and under-appreciated local scenery both await you on this convenient outing that starts with an upstream trek on the C&O Canal Towpath and a side trip to the Great Falls Overlook. There the hikes separate. Moderate hikers follow the Lock 19 Spur Trail, Overlook Trail and Berma Rd. back to the Towpath, hike Sections B and C of the Billy Goat Trail, and return to the parking area. Long hikers tackle the more difficult, bouldery Section A of the Billy Goat Trail before following the moderate hikers onto Sections B and C.
