All of my friends rave about how amazing this trail is -- they weren't wrong! If you love rock climbing this is for sure the place. Follow the blue lines and you're set!

Nice short hike along the river, listening to the rushing water most of the way. Very busy and parking (Anglers) can be really difficult. I'd consider this just barely moderate - there are a couple short rock scrambles but most is path with very little elevation gain. The Billy Goat Trail B is actually not a loop - it's an out and back trail but people generally take the towpath back, creating the loop. Actual trail is only 1.4 miles.

Great trail! My dog loved it!!! He loves climbing on all the rocks and had a great time running through the beachy part of the water. Highly recommend. Awesome views.

Both B and C are very good. They have good views of the Potomac along with some easy rock scrambles. Also are well maintained.
