Everyone In Washington DC Must Visit This Epic Waterfall As Soon As Possible
Almost everyone in Washington DC knows about Great Falls, the incredible waterfall just outside of the District. But if you travel up a few hours north to Rocks State Park near Pylesville Maryland, you will find another epic waterfall. Not many Washingtonians make it up to Kilgore Falls but once you’ve seen how beautiful it is, you’ll want to make a trip immediately!
After making the drive to Pylesville, about two hours north of the city, you will head towards Rocks State Park.
You can take the Falling Branch Trail to Kilgore Falls. The entire area of Falling Branch Trail was once a meeting place for Susequhannock Indians. The land was relatively unknown until the state purchased it in 1993.
The Falling Branch Trail is a moderate 1.3 mile loop that leads past Kilgore Falls before looping back down around.
The trail is not difficult and it takes about half a mile to hike to the falls.
Even though the hike is short, it is worth spending some time at the falls because they are spectacular.
At 19 feet high, Kilgore Falls is Maryland’s second highest free falling waterfall.
Not only is Kilgore Falls beautiful but it’s also famous. They were featured in the 2002 Disney movie, Tuck Everlasting.
The falls are gorgeous any time of year but many people believe they are most picturesque in the winter when the water crashes through the snow.
No matter what time of year you choose to visit Kilgore Falls, you will never forget the breathtaking beauty of nature there. The address for directions to the parking lot is: 1026 Falling Branch Rd, Pylesville, MD 21132.
