Great Falls National Park - Great Falls Park, an 800 acre park located along the Potomac River, is one of the most spectacular natural landmarks in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.  We went on a day hike in Great Falls National Park.  We took the 'River Trail, along the george with fantastic views of the falls and the Potomac river.  We followed the Potomac River for approximately 1.5 miles, along the tops of the cliffs. In some areas, this trail runs right next to the edge of the cliff, offering spectacular views of the Potomac and Mather Gorge. Cliff heights range from 25-75 feet and there is some rock scrambling involved but not that bad!
