The Hike To This Secluded Waterfall Swimming Hole In Maryand Is Positively Amazing
Have you seen all of Maryland’s hidden waterfalls? They’re pretty extraordinary in their own way. The following natural wonder is the second highest free-falling waterfall in the state, and
the hike to reach it is rewarding as well. At only a little over one mile in length, the trek is worth the (easy) effort.
Kilgore Falls is located at Rocks State Park in Harford County. You can visit this place year-round and you may even spot visitors splashing around in the water during summer months.
The hike to reach the falls is about 1.2 miles in length, making it suitable for most ages, including children.
Be aware that there are bumpy parts of the trail, including rocks and tree roots. Strollers may not be the most easy thing to navigate along the path.
Along the way you'll spot all sorts of plants, flowers, and keep your eyes peeled for wildlife.
There's even a stream crossing where you can stop and take in the view and listen to the calming sound of trickling water. Younger children may want to stop here and wade...
...but the best place to take a dip is at the waterfall swimming hole. Note that there are no lifeguards, so swim at your own risk. For a magical experience, you can stand directly under the falls as they splash down on you. How cool!
The park is open sunrise to sunset and it is advised that visitors looking to hike Falling Branch Trail to Kilgore Falls arrive early. Warm months can get crowded.
