Great trail beautiful day. Very crowded
Great trail with a few tricky parts. Strongly recommend good hiking boots.
Beautiful place to go! Very well marked! Can't wait to go back!
Amazing views of the Potomac River. Section 1 most difficult but well worth the effort. River is spectacular when high after heavy rains. As beautiful as any trail I've hiked out West.
