Great Falls

The QuepoArte Great Falls Picture Project has been developed for The Tavern at River Falls NOW OPEN at 10128 River Road in the Village of Potomac, Maryland. It captures the historic site and surrounding nature during all four seasons.

The Great Falls of the Potomac River are located at the fall line of the Potomac River, 14 miles upstream from Washington, D.C. 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. The Billy Goat Trail on Bear Island, accessible from Maryland, offers scenic views of the Great Falls, as do vantage points on Olmsted Island (also accessible from Maryland) and overlook points on the Virginia side. The Great Falls area is popular for outdoor activities such as kayaking, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, and hiking.
