The Billy Goat Trail “B”

BGTb4may16-02201

There’s a trail along the Potomac River near the Great Falls section in Potomac Maryland. The Billy Goat trail, known well for it’s “Part A” with its difficult boulder scrambles and spectacular views of Maryland’s canyon, offers two lesser known sections.

Like the letter B, the Billy Goat trail offers three sections that are in half-circles that start and return to the C&O Towpath. My personal favorite has always been Part “B” which is lesser used and offer beautifully serene meanders along the water. Although not offering a strenuous hike like Part “A” has, it does have a few small boulder scrambles and a stream crossing.

Wildflowers brighten the trail in May, including trumpet vines that hummingbirds love.

How I wish I lived closer to the Billy Goat Trail. I’d probably walk its paths every day.
