National Park Service
A variety of animals can be found in Great Falls Park. The park's 800 acres include forests, swamplands, open meadows, a pond, clifftop areas, streams, and the Potomac River. These features give the park's animals everything they need to survive here.
All wildlife is protected in the park. Observe animals from a distance, and do not feed or attempt to touch an animal. If you see an animal acting strangely, contact a park ranger.
Did You Know?
The round holes you see in the rocks along the River Trail were carved by the Potomac. Some of these potholes are large enough to stand in and can take over 500 years to form.
