The falls and rapids here are very scenic. The most exciting thing about this park was the view of kayakers going through the rapids in December! We also enjoyed the walking trails and outdoor exhibits. We were disappointed the visitor center (VC) was closed because we are enthusiastic VC visitors (why we only gave this park a score of four) but pleased the staff left stamped scraps of paper for our Passport book on an outdoor table.

Beautiful hike.

The falls are adjacent to the parking and picnic areas. There are multiple hiking trails, including some that cross into adjacent parks. The river trail is beautiful but very densely trafficked on weekends.

Arrive early on weekends as parking fills up if weather is nice. There is almost no cell service on the trail, so do grab a map at the entrance.

Many good spots for picnic and photos.

Wear good shoes as the river trail is quite rocky in parts.

We came on a pretty busy day so the lines to get in were long and the parking lot was almost full. The falls were amazing from the 3 lookouts & there was an area where you could go down to the rocks but we didnt. I was a little bummed that the visitor center was closed so I couldn't get my passport stamped but overall it was a good stop.

We had a great day hiking and enjoying the view. Hike was a little bit challenging. There was a lovely wheelchair accessible ramp. Great picnic area. Really nice park! I hope the visitor center will be open next time!

The Great Falls of the Potomac is simply breathtaking. The cascades are numerous and thunderous. Steep rock cliffs line both sides of the river, giving a good vantage point to view the falls. I arrived just at dusk and was treated to a beautiful sunset and moonrise over the Potomac.

The park is fairly small. There's three viewing areas in the park, which is on the Virginia side of the Potomac. Each offers a different vantage point from the falls. The third viewpoint is perhaps the most expansive, but all have spectacular views.

Don't miss the sign by the path to the third overlook, which shows the high-water marks from various floods. It's amazing to see how far the river rose.

Beautiful views and nice, easy hikes. We went on Fathers Day with a 4 year old and a 2 year old and had no trouble completing the hike by the river.

The park is just a few miles from the Beltway, the the Falls is a different world and is something to ponder. It's the longest falls in the nation and a thrill to see. There is lots of parking and there are Rangers with answers to your questions. This is a "Don't Miss!"

This was our first trip. We have a national park pass and were anxious to use it, the day was overcast and cool but still viewing of falls was beautiful. We went on a weekday so not crowded! We went to the three overlooks, and spent at least thirty minutes at each enjoying the views, each one the view is slightly different. Pleasantly surprised to see so many great blue herons fishing. Than we walked the river trail past overlook three and walked thru and over so many rock formations. Had a great view of the gorge. We did not walk the whole trail, as far as the bridge and the rains came. The trip is what we expected.

A visit to this wonderful park is the perfect respite from the cityscapes of Washington D.C. Just a short drive from D.C., this park features many great hiking trails, abundant wildlife, historical sites, and of course the waterfalls.

The Potomac River narrows and squeezes through the Mather Gorge to create gorgeous falls. There are entrances on both the Virginia and Maryland sides. The Billy Goat Trail is known to be challenging, but provides fantastic river views. It was closed during my visit due to flooding.
