Tour: Moonlight Hike at Great Falls If this glorious fall weather has you itching to make the best use of your time before winter arrives, Great Falls National Park can scratch that itch. During the day, the riverside view of the Potomac as it crashes through Mather Gorge will take your breath away. Folks looking to shed civilization altogether should consider the night hike offered by the Capital Hiking Club, which takes you from the Old Anglers Inn on MacArthur Blvd. straight into Great Falls National Park, by way of a canal towpath (along which horses pulled barges loaded with goods). The four-mile, two-hour hike is flat, suitable for beginners as well as the elderly, the young, and even dogs (so long as the latter two are properly restrained). And since it begins at 8:30 p.m., even seasoned day-trippers will see a new side of the park. Oct. 7 at the parking lot across from Old Anglers Inn, 10801 MacArthur Blvd., Potomac, MD.
