The park’s namesake is a 78-foot waterfall, which qualifies as Maryland’s largest cascading waterfall. Cunningham Falls State Park is situated in the Catoctin Mountains. Cunningham Falls is an easy half-mile hike from the Houck camping area along the Falls Trail. The park itself has lots of hiking trails, including a mostly isolated one (part of the Catoctin Trail) heading to the Manor camping area. Additionally, the park’s fluid border with Catoctin Mountain Park assures even more hiking opportunities nearby.
