This Waterfall And Swimming Hole In Maryland Must Be On Your Summer Bucket List
What could be better than a swimming hole? A waterfall swimming hole! This natural wonder in Maryland is great for visiting year-round, but especially during summertime when you can take a refreshing dip in the water. Read on for the details and plan a summer day trip to this stunning gem in the Old Line State.
You'll find Rocks State Park in Harford County, Maryland.
This local park covers 1,060 acres and every inch is naturally beautiful. Most people head here for the rocky trails leading to the King and Queen Seat overlook...
...and for the onsite waterfall known as Kilgore Falls. The easiest way to reach the waterfall is to park at the Falling Branch area.
The parking lot fills up quickly, especially during summertime. You MUST
reserve a parking pass
before your visit if you'll be heading here on a weekend (or holiday) between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
Once you're parked and ready to go, you'll head to the Falling Branch Trail, which is less than a mile to the waterfall.
Kilgore Falls is 17-feet high, making it Maryland's second highest free-falling waterfall. Not many people know that it was also a filming location of the Disney movie, Tuck Everlasting.
Take a dip in the shallow water or cool off directly under the waterfall! This spot is oh- so dreamy, no matter the angle you're viewing it from.
When you're not visiting Kilgore Falls during summertime, be sure to also keep it in mind during autumn, or even wintertime, too. During autumn it becomes a copper-colored paradise, and during winter, it becomes frozen over and is a must-see in person at least once.
