Gathland is a relatively small park with a great location, home to the War Correspondents' Arch, that serves as the starting point for a very nice stretch of the Appalachian Trail. The arch of stone is simple, an reminds us that war correspondents go back at lest to the Civil War. The AT from here to Weverton Cliffs is about 3-4 hours (though you will have to leave a shuttle car at the small parking area at the Weverton end. or make it a full day our and back to the Arch) with a side trail to a great overlook of the winding bends of the Potomac River far below and nice switchbacks down to the Weverton end.
