The C&O Canal park (otherwise known as the Maryland side of Great Falls) is spectacular. If you'd just like an easy afternoon walk, take a short stroll (less than a mile) to the Great Falls Overlook. If you'd like a mini-adventure (and want to forget you're in DC), head to Billy Goat Trail (Section A). There are small rock scrambles and gorgeous views. If you'd prefer a walk in the woods, try out Gold Mine Loop, which starts behind the visitors center. ALWAYS grab a map if you don't know where you are. The trails are easy to follow, but there are many of them.
