45 Bikes & Hikes: Billy Goat Trail (B Section)
Comments () | Published June 11, 2013

Carderock, Md Potomac Scramble Billy Goat Trail (B section)

Distance: 2.5-mile loop

Less crowded than the A and C sections, the B section offers spectacular views of rock formations along the riverbanks. Start at the Carderock parking lot and head north on the C&O Canal towpath. Look for the trailhead sign and divert down toward the Potomac River. There are a few small beaches and several fun rock scrambles along the shaded terrain. The trail reconnects with the canal to complete a loop back to the parking area. For more, see
