Nice trails, but trash everywhere even on the quieter side trails you see beer cans and other junk. Near the falls themselves even more beer cans and lots of scruffy loud people in the water. Parking lot is tiny and fills up fast on weekends. Has great potential, but a real shame it is not policed or cleaned up regularly.
Thumbs down. I was excited to get to the waterfall. Along the way was so much trash, including a broken cooler with broken beer bottles everywhere. When I got there, so many high schoolers and college kids drinking beers and throwing their beer bottles into the Potomac. What could have been a beautiful hike turned into such a disappointment.
