More hiking than I expected. Way harder than I thought.

it should be noted that this "easy" version of this trail is not shown on the map that you download from AllTrails, and the main photo above is also not part of this hike. If you enter at Anglers and cross the bridge to the towpath, Billy Goat A is to the right (the entrance to this trail is on the right in the main photo)...this trail is pretty difficult and comes with lots of warnings. The actual easy trail (Billy Goat B) is to the left after you cross the bridge at Anglers.

simple and easy loop - pretty much gets repetitive after coming here so many times...now its just super crowded and not as fun as it used to be as the trails seem to be getting worn down
