Great Falls Park, operated by the National Park Service, is located on the southern banks in Virginia, while Chesapeake and Ohio Canal parkland is located along the northern banks of the river in Maryland.

Great Falls of the Potomac River The South Branch Potomac River lies completely within the state of West Virginia except for . The Patowmack Canal was intended by George Washington to connect the Tidewater region near Georgetown with Cumberland, Maryland

Great Falls of the Potomac River. The Potomac River watershed covers the District of Columbia and parts of four states. The South Branch Potomac River lies completely within the state of West Virginia except for its headwaters, which lie in Virginia. The Patowmack Canal was intended by George Washington to connect the Tidewater region near Georgetown with Cumberland, Maryland. Started in 1785 on the Virginia side of the river, it was not completed until 1802. Financial troubles led to the closure of the canal in 1830.

The Potomac River is the boarder between Virginia and Maryland . When construction began at Great Falls and Little Falls the labor problems got worst. Today Great Falls Park, a unit of the George Washington Memorial Parkway

The Potomac River is the boarder between Virginia and Maryland, but the river belongs to Maryland. This geographic challenge altered the course of American history. Opening the Potomac for navigation required cooperation of Virginia and Maryland. Indentured servants would run away, and blend into local communities. Today Great Falls Park, a unit of the George Washington Memorial Parkway. The preservation of the Patowmack Canal is part of the National Park Service's continuing efforts to protect and preserve special resources with national significance.

Great Falls-Carderock (Potomac River Gorge). Another great guidebook is Carderock Past and Present, published by PATC (Potomac Appalachian Trail Club). Routes (4). Images (65). Great Falls Park offers much more than climbing; hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, wildlife viewing, and just plain old family picnicking are also popular. This page, and its children, though, will focus on the climbing, aside from the scenic (I hope) pictures of the area itself. The PATC guide fits nicely into a pack pocket and is full of excellent photographs that help locate the routes.
