Great Falls State Park, Virginia and Maryland Border
Virginia (Fairfax County) and Maryland Border (Montgomery County) The Potomac River flows into the Atlantic Ocean
I had visited Great Falls as a part of a vacation to trip with my grandchildren, and to meet up with a Marine Grandmother. I had done not extensive research regarding Great Falls whitewater routes. I actually did not realize the greatness of the area. I had only visited the one location at the visitor center on the Virginia side. This was a very easy walk to three observation decks. I have split up my photos taken in each of the observation deck locations. The entire walk to the three observation decks is approximately a .5 round trip.
The following information should not be relied upon as completely accurate. I compiled my resources to the best of my ability. The links provided below is what was used. I only included information in regards to the section of Great Falls seen from the observation decks. The map I have included shows ALL the points that I could figure out.
I plan to revisit this location in the future. It will take more than a day to hike the Great Fallsarea from both sides of the state line.
