Non-strenuous walk, fantastic views on the bridges of the falls and awesome locks. Fun place for a walk or passthrough hike/ride. Love coming here. Great walks, and fantastic views of the Potomac. A few nice lookout points, and great spots for some scrambling and bouldering rocks. Tons of parking, bathrooms and concession staff during peak times, and fun for people of all ages. There is a small fee to get in but well worth. Can get busy during the summer. It not so much at other times...
