Come and explore the less traveled part of the Billy Goat trail. This is the B and C section that is further south then the main section right next to great falls. This hike is less strenuous then the other trail but still offers beautiful views of the Potomac River. The hike will include a few moderate up and downs and some short rocky areas. We will start in the middle of the two trails and complete two separate loops with a grand total of 5.8 miles. This is a great hike with spectacular views. Come check it out!!

Following the hike we are off to Bethesda to enjoy some Mongolian food at bds. For more information on dinner go to : bd's mongolian grill

How to Get There:
Event Directions:From Maryland

take I-495 south (the Outer Loop for local folk) toward Northern Virgina. Take Exit 41, (last exit in Maryland, prior to the bridge) toward Carderock. This will put you on westbound Clara Barton Parkway.

From Virginia

take I-495 north (the Inner Loop for local folk) toward Maryland. After passing the George Washington Parkway exit, get in the extreme right lane as you cross the American Legion Bridge into Maryland. This is an exit only lane for the Clara Barton Parkway (Exit 41). Caution: The exit ramp forks very soon after you exit. Take the left fork for Carderock. This will put you on westbound Clara Barton Parkway.

Once on Clara Barton Parkway, you may note that David Taylor Model Basin is on your right (the very long building). Take the first exit off the parkway, making a left at the top of the ramp. This will take you right into the recreation area. Make a right once you enter the recreation area and head to the far parking lot. We will meet there to start the hike.
