Difficult Run, Proving Difficult to Hike

Previously, Shira and I were close to hiking Difficult Run, but instead opted to explore the Cross Country Tail. Yesterday, we again made an attempt at the hike,but this time, found that the trail was closed due to weather.

Luckily, we noticed a trail head for Great Falls Park as we were making our way back to our car. The map seemed clear enough, so we decided we'd hike around. It turned out to be a smart move, as the hiking was quite nice. The leaves are changing, so there was a whole smattering of color - from bright green to dark brown.

The park offers some ruins you can explore, which always appeal to me (history, history, history!). We also caught a glimpse of the river below, and it was gorgeous. While the woods were fun to trudge through, I'm eager to come back and hike around the river.

Great Falls is definitely a gem in the area. And Difficult Run trail will have to continue to wait.
