This is my favorite trail and has been since I was about 5 years old. With children of my own now I just can't wait to let them experience this. Best days to go are overcast and slightly cool. The trail has many options for the virgin hiker to the novice.
Its sad to see that people actually don't go here as much as when I was a kid. Literally you could not park in the lot most days now there are plenty of open spaces.
When I was a kid they use to run boat tours down the barges man that was the best. They don't do that anymore due to funding cuts but it was amazing to watch. If you are visiting the area for a tour of DC I would defiantly check this place out. There is more to life than man made structures and beauty to be found even in this big city.
