Went on 1-1-19. So many different types of birds spotted! The trail offered beautiful water views throughout. There was a moderate amount of litter/ trash towards the end of the trail which was sad. We took the towpath back and it took us about 1.5 hours.

It was a nice walk but the trail needs to be groomed up a bit.

Nice walk along the Potomac. Northern end starts along cliffs similar to upper Billy Goat Trail sections, where many people were rock climbing. As the topography flattens out, there are many places where you can leave the trail and walk along the water's edge. You can do an out and back, or complete a loop by walking along the C&O Canal Towpath back to your starting point.
