Description

This area is extremely similar to Great Falls Virginia - its across the river! It doesn't have as many climbs but if you are into some good Billy Goat trails and scrambling to get to where you climb, this has your name written all over it!

Getting There

Take the Carderock exit off I-495. Follow Clara Barton Parkway past Carderock. Turn left on MacArthur Boulevard and continue a short distance to the primary climbers' parking area across the road from the Old Angler's Inn. Don't park in the Inn's lot!
