We took the trail to the right of the park as you drive in. The path wasn't as wide as i would have liked. I think we were on a trail that not many people use. We did have to climb over 3 fallen trees....More

The path will take about 25-35 minutes to walk, and you can come back a different way. It's got a great view of the Potomac at the end.

Great spot for a short (1-2) hike or riverside picnic. Nice trail options that have reasonably easy elevation changes. The Potomac views are nice, parking is easy, and most of the trails are family accessible.

This attraction is one you might miss if you don't pay special attention - there is ample parking and offers both an easy and more challenging hike to the overlook. Well worth it - with beautiful views of the Potomac River.

There are some wonderful buildings/ruins here to look at along with a gorgeous hike with lots of options for the trails to lead you to overlook the Potomac River. Close by and I would love to visit all of the trail options.
