I finally made it back to the Billy Goat Trail after a 15+ year hiatus. What an amazing set of views - and a real gem so close to Washington DC. We hiked on the "A" section of the trail. Click on any of the pictures for a larger view.
Looking west from the eastern part of the trail. The river looks peaceful here, but a sign warns of seven fatalities in this area last year.
There is a lot of smaller rock scrambling on the trail. This was by far the longest. If you take the trail from the west you climb up - from the east you descend.
Looking east. The trail itself is busy, and you can see quite a few kayaks in there river and climbers on the Virginia side across the Potomac.
