Olmstead Island Maryland

A very pleasant way for a Washingtonian to spend a warm winter's afternoon is to pay a visit to Olmstead Island in the Potomac River. The trail is placid enough for senior citizens to enjoy; my three year-old son found the trail to be fun and easy. The series of bridges and boardwalks provide vistas of Olmstead Island and the Potomac River. Bridges traverse a unique floodplain, granite-terrace environment and there are even flowers unique to this gorge. At the end of the Olmstead Island Bride nature walk lies a Great Falls overlook, in addition to a spectacular view of the head of Mather Gorge. Handicapped accessible, however, dogs are not permitted (except service dogs).
