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.
