Thanks to someone on Tripadvisor I learned of Great Falls. We stopped with our pet on our way to Gettysburg and happy that we did. It is a nice walk to the different look out points and the views are just beautiful. So glad that we found out about this place!

Well worth the parking and hike out to the falls. Bring your dog for the walk, some rock climbing required but not too difficult. The view is definitely worth the hike and effort.

Definitely a great place to hike/bike and enjoy the outdoors.

The Maryland side has better views of the actual falls than the VA side in my opinion.

If you are looking to do something outdoors with your significant other, family or whoever this is a great place to go

Ive been there twice and was a great experience both the times. Can be a really good family place. BBQ spots. lots of sightings areas. moderate level trails. good place for kayaking n water rafting. Could be a great picnic day for a family.

It's such a beautiful place, absolutely wonderful! I went in summer time but I bet that in Fall it looks 10x's better! It's a great place to distract yourself from reality, to enjoy some alone time, hike or even walk your dog.
