Nice in every season. The river trail has jaw-droppingly spectacular views and is great for hiking, but best to wear sturdy shoes with good traction. Parallel trails along the old Patowmack canal ruins and Matildaville ruins are excellent for jogging, up to 12 miles is a pretty easy loop along the river if you head upriver passing the falls and the dam and cross into River Bend park. Views of the falls are best from the Virginia side, which has good picnic facilities. For longer runs and equally scenic trails including the C&O Canal towpath that stretches from Georgetown to Ohio, the Maryland side of the falls are also very good.
