It doesn't matter what decade or century you are in, or if you are a local resident or not, Great Falls Park is a fabulous place to visit. You can see evidence of old canals, enjoy the rushing Potomac River, watch the kayaks, negotiate the rocky waterway and stand in awe at the high water marks from floods years ago. Enjoy a picnic, visit the nature center, go hiking, imagine George Washington making plans for the canal and locks, or just be one with nature.
There are different vantage points to see the falls, and it's an easy walk to them. With a bad knee I made it just fine. My family has been coming here since the 1940's and we all love it!
