If you want to enjoy a good hike when you are in McLean, USA, then head towards Cow Hoof Rock. Tucked away in tall woods and located by the Potomac River, this place lets you step into the wild. The trails in the park are quite challenging but worth a good hike. At every turn of the trail, you will be welcomed by panoramic views. You can sit on the rocks by the river for hours together, basking in its tranquility. There are a few benches too in the park where you can sit and relax for a while. A great place to burn off some built-up energy, consider visiting it on a weekend.

Beautiful place- can be seen and visited from the billy goat trail on the Potomac river. Definitely worth stopping to see
I come here every week...
Great Falls is always a gorgeous hike. This can be a bit strenuous but manageable for even the youngest of kids. There are also flatter trails nearby.
WOW, The view is amazing, but be careful when hiking the trail. Lots of steep steps/climb and very narrow trail. Do not recommend for anyone who has mobility challenges. I hiked the trail from the Difficult Run Parking Lot. If you have never hiked in this part of the park, I recommend having a printed map. I also use a hiking app to track my hike, and if I were to get lost, I can always back track or use the online map as a guide.
Four stars could hav3 been five but the service was stoic
