We live in Leesburg and always use White’s Ferry fir destinations in Frederick and Montgomery Counties in Maryland. We avoid rush hours and get to Rockville, for instance, in 30-40 minutes. The smooth and scenic ride across the river and through rural stretches of Montgomery...More

When you're taking a drive in the VA/MD countryside, nothing better than to take the route via White's Ferry. The ferry ride is short, but fun. Do it when there's less traffic, or you can face a backup.

We rode the GAP trail and used the ferry to get to our hotel shuttle (Comfort Suites). It's cheap, quick and fun.

It the weather is good, a great way to avoid the Washington Beltway to travel from North Potomac MD to Leesburg VA. Lovely country roads, tranquil scenery, and the trip across runs every few minutes. I think it took about 15 minutes for the crossing....More

If you done the Woolwich ferry this is a smaller version and lower towards the water! Great views and an interesting diversion.

I imagine that at certain times, there is a bit of a queue for the ferry crossing, but we were lucky on both occasions that we had a very short wait. Ferry crossing was smooth.

My wife and I did this today, for the first time in many years. The crossing only takes about 15 minutes, including the time to load and collect the tickets. The wait line was really no line at all, as we got on as soon...More

I know there is a small parking lot there. I would call them and ask. I agree, it would be a great place to park.
