"Narrow Natural Wonder"

Mather Gorge, which is located inside the Great Falls Park, is the narrowest section of the lower stretch of the Potomac River. The gorge, which is just down river from the Great Falls, takes its name from Stephen Mather, the first director of the National Parks Service. Visitors to the park can hike along the steep cliffs of the gorge, or scale the cliffs themselves while rock climbing. The gorge can also be explored by kayak and canoe, though water goers should be aware that the gorge contains Class I to Class IV whitewater rapids.
