One of the most challenging and rewarding day hikes near DC is right along the C & O Canal at Great Falls, MD. If you are native to the Greater DC area, you've probably heard about this trail. Billy Goat Trail A offers a variety of flat terrain and some moderate rock climbing for a nice hike/work out. Even though dogs, horses, and bikes are prohibited on the trail, expect some company. Due to the areas proximity to DC it attracts a lot of visitors just to see the Falls area so our best advice is to avoid this hike on the weekends if possible.
