I love this place because you can visit both sides of the Falls in MD and VA. The Virginia side offers more of people who are rock climbers. You can actually bring your own equipment and register. You can fish and go water kayaking but the waters do look dangerous. I love the scenery and we took some many beautiful pictures and make sure you bring a picnic basket. My husband and I went there when we were first dating. There is a trail map for hikers. There are some really difficult paths. I like the golden view of the falls where you can see the waters and plants. If the weather is beautiful this is a great place to visit.
