Amherst Association of Washington, D.C.

invites you to an

Alumni Hike


Please join fellow alums for a hike through Great Falls Park and see all of fall's splendor along the Potomac River. We'll be rewarded with sweeping views of the river on one of three overlooks, watch the Potomac crash through a gorge, see rock climbers ascend a scramble on the Maryland side of the river, and and maybe we can even spot an eagle or cormorant.

Hiking level is easy to moderate (sneakers are fine).
