Rocks State Park: Falling Branch Professional Review and Guide

"The Falling Branch area of Rocks State Park is a 67-acre parcel of land located 5 miles north of the main body of the 855-acre park. The biggest reward on this wooded hike is the second-highest natural vertical waterfall in Maryland, Kilgore Falls.

The wooded path will take you over a footbridge and boardwalk as you make your way to the falls, following Falling Branch stream, a tributary of Deer Creek. Falling Branch stream passes through a steep gorge known as Kilgore Rocks. Along the way you’ll see a few hemlock trees, oaks, and lots of maples. Look for white-tailed deer, red fox, wild turkey, black snakes, black racers, and a variety of birds like woodcocks. If you are really lucky, you might even see an eagle. This environmentally sensitive area is also host to a family of beavers, but be sure to enjoy the wildlife from a distance."
