Rocks State Park: Falling Branch Professional Review and Guide
"Take a short hike with a grand payoff: Kilgore Falls, Maryland’s second-highest vertical waterfall. The relatively small (67 acres) Falling Branch Area of Rocks State Park remains environmentally sensitive. Once a meeting place for Susquehannock Indians, local hikers and nature enthusiasts didn’t know about it for many years because it sat on private property. Fortunately, in 1993, the state, with the help of many local activists including Harford County public-school children, bought the land and turned it over to Rocks State Park officials for administration. It has become one of the most attractive parcels for many miles around."
