Hike Billy Goat Trail Section B

Billy Goat Trail Section B - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

Wildflowers, lush woods, and Potomac River views make for an unforgettable hike. 

Park in the lot on MacArthur Blvd. (see map) to access the trailhead. Trail is well-defined but little-traveled. You may want to bring a field guide for identifying wildflowers and the critters of the region.

Overall rating: 

Wonderful Views

Rather easy, with wonderful views on the Potomac, even at high temperatures nice, because shady.

Less Crowds

While not as grand and less exciting of a hike than section A, this hike does offer some pretty spectacular views of the river, some neat rocks to scramble, and has significantly less crowds than the more popular section A.
