You may have to enter the park before you discover whether the road work is done, and the road open. Not sure if that's what you did Sat.

Last time out there instead of going right on Falls I went straight into the park. After the first little downhill, a work crew was set up working on the park road (may still show as Macarthur on a map), it was down to one skinny, one way at a time lane with cars backed up each way, mid afternoon middle of the week.

Have a great ride and report back if you learn anything.

I rode down the road to Great Falls Park and turned around at the bottom and of the hill last Saturday. The road surface is a mess but it's seems the road works are carried out during the week. Just need to be a bit more careful on the descent and climb as there are lots of rocks and pot holes.
