A great family hiking trail!

One of our favorite family trail hikes!

Beautiful Park area but the trails are so poorly marked it's not worth the time.

Watch out for the stinging nettles in summer. They got very dense under two miles when hiking west to east.

I was a little skeptical because it was such a popular trail and I was thinking it.kight be a let down... and I proven wrong. it's a great walk/hike with absolutely gorgeous scenery. you're only hurting yourself of you don't go!

great hike. Section B was closed due to flooding. be prepared with a good amount of water

beautiful scenery and sounds

Hiked trail A. Great view, great workout. Has some challenging areas so, appropriate shoes are suggested. Will definitely go again. Does get a bit congested in the later morning hours.

Moderate tough with beautiful river side scenery and the sound of gushing river water.

Visited this trail while visiting Deep Creek Lake for the week. Went early on a Wednesday morning and only saw a few mountain bikers! The terrain varies and of course there is some elevation gain which gave us a nice workout! Some nice scenery though we couldn't see much from the Scenic Overlook due to tree coverage; made for a nice look break spot though! The trail was very well marked and had little maps at trail intersections which helped a ton though we did end up adding about a mile and a half to our walk because we were too busy talking and missed part of the trail that turned.

Because I was running out of time I only did part B and the view of the river and wall of rocks was fenomenal

This is a great hike, beautiful views and so close to the city.

section A is great workout with amazing scenery. get there early to beat the crowd. definitely recommend starting at the trailhead closest to the visitor center and bring plenty of water with you.

Trail A was a lot of fun. Watch your step on this one =]

I did Billy Goat Trails A and C (B was closed). I also hiked a good bit on the tow path for the return trip. Get there early. I was there and ready to start at 7 am. Hardly anyone around. By 930-10 am, there were lots of people. this trail is good for hiking or running. Follow the blue markers. Also, I rec getting the pro version of All Trails. My parents called me while I was hiking. I got distracted and got off trail (badly). When I got off track, it was easy to find my way back using the app. NI encountered no mosquitoes, which was a bonus. Trail is very shady. I definite repeat.

Very pleasant surprise to find this well maintained, easy trail with river, woods and cows grazing within 10 minuets from Francis Scott Mall.

A is a great hike if no medical conditions. Saw lots of young children having a great time!

Great trail for a couple hour hike. Fun but also a challenge. Great work out. Some type of hiking shoes are best for section A. Does get congested that’s why it lost a star.

Best in Maryland!

Good trail some parts get a little backed up with traffic. Get ready to climb rocks, decent physical challenge not too bad or exhausting.

Awesome trail close by with many different types of scenery. Loved it!

Loved it!

love the views and cliffs. much wild life

Great hike on a short loop. I went right first to Tolliver falls which is small but has a little beach and pool area if u want to cool off. Then upper falls that you can go on and has a nice vista view down river and a little down the river a nice view back upstream at it. Lower falls after that then nice rocky hike to muddy creek falls the biggest of the group.

So right off the batnn the trail isn't marked well. The sign that leads into the trail, which says nothing about it actually being the trail, has a wasp nest in it. There is no sign telling you which way the trail goes, so I went to the right. Bad move, because the trail ended after a minute of running. What's even more fun, there was a nasty wasp nest hiding in the bushes, and one managed to sting me right in the neck. This trail needs to at least be marjed better, and having two wasp nests is kind of frustrating. So... at least until I come back and go the other way, this trail is not recommended. If you do go on it, watch out for the wasps.

scenic. Us and dogs enjoyed. will return

As of today Trails A and B are closed but the trail to Great Falls overlook is great. It’s flat, smooth, small pebbles; easy for walking or biking. The overlook is incredible.

A pleasant, easy walk but parts of the trail is full of large rocks since it was a bed for a stream. Nice views of the water and the forest.

I love running this trail. It has a good bit of variety. Some good climbs and technical terrain. The views aren’t that great but if you are looking for a challenge this is a great one for 10k distance trail training.
