The Falls. If you like biking, hiking or walking this is the place to go in VA.

The Great Falls Park, Virginia, USA

This is one of the best places to truly enjoy a beautiful day!  We enjoy going to “The Falls” for biking, hiking or even “just walking”.  It is always a delight for the body and soul!

Usually we ride our bikes all way along the trail.  There are also excellent places to walk there. The Billy Goat Trail is among the main attractions there.

There’s a big parking lot, although it can get full during sunny days.  I recommend you get there early, not only to find a parking spot easily but also to avoid the crowds  while walking along the beautiful trails.

If you are visiting the Washington D.C.  area  and are traveling by car, go visit The Great Falls.   It’s wonderful and your memories will last forever.

There is a walking path that takes visitors very close to the falls.  It’s amazing!

Do not miss this park if you are visiting the region. I am sure you will have a wonderful time there, regardless the season. Of course fall colors are amazing, but we have been all over the year and I can guarantee this is an attraction that should not be missed, even if you are traveling with people with disabilities, or elderly or even small kids. Go! Go! Go! And drop me  a line telling me your opinion about The Great Falls Park!  🙂
