My wife and I go here often and walk different sections with our dog. Each season is different with different things to see. Wildlife is plentiful, especially birds. The towpath can be crowded, especially when you get close to Washington. Bikers sometime race up behind you without notice which can be frustrating. When you get out past Great Falls, it does get quieter. Week days are very quiet compared to weekends.
Great Falls is definitely worth a visit. It is the one place in the park that you have to pay to get in. It is a bit of a hike from the parking lot to the falls but it's pretty flat and is handicap accessable.
Tourists to the area my not be as interested as locals but it's great for anyone who needs a quiet walk with nature.
