Trail shared by Luke AT

A winding trail with a few small rock scrambles along the Potomac through the lower Mather Gorge.

Description

This trail is similar to Billy Goat Trail Section A, but less intense and with fewer stretches of rock scrambling. Consequently, the trail is less used than Section A and provides a quieter exploration of the environments of the lower Mather Gorge.
