Great Falls Park
For generations, Great Falls was simply an obstacle to the flow of goods from western farms to eastern seaports. To walk along cliffs that line the river and delve into the Piedmont forest and study the ruins of the Patowmack Canal-predecessor to both the C&O Canal and New York's Erie Canal-is to capture a bit of the essence of a place both naturally and historically significant.
