Amazing views, worth leaving the trail to climb out on the rocks and relax in the sunshine. Worth a day trip if you are in the DC area.

We rented a car for the day and drove from DC to the Udvar Hazy Space Museum near Dulles airport. Thankfully we had enough time to drive over to the Great Falls Park. This a great trip through the forests and saw some awesome homes along the way. My husband thought oh we've seen Niagara Falls so what can beat that? Well this is a very close second. They are enormous - power of the water and the width of the falls is really something. If you have time this is a nice Diversion from the congestion, concrete and steel of DC. It is an easy drive. Enjoy!

The views are absolutely beautiful. You'll walk a little bit, so wear comfortable shoes. The place does get extremely busy when it is warm out.

We went during cold time of year so was chilly that day but was worth seeing. Just the drive to get there is beautiful with all the houses to see. The 1 look out point is a climb thru rocks but a great close up view. The other 2 look points are easy to get to and are just as beautiful to see.
