Location: Rocks State Park

Kilgore Falls is the second-highest waterfall in Maryland.

The hike to the falls is considered to be easy and family friendly. The park is also dog friendly. According to the website, Rocks State Park remains environmentally sensitive and this area in particular, the Falling Brach area, is very well maintaned. This area was once a meeting place for Susquehannock Indians.

How to get there:

While you’re there:

The King and Queen Seat, once a ceremonial gathering place of the Susquehannock Indians, is a natural 190 foot rock outcrop. This cliff, reached by scenic trails, affords a view of the rolling hills and farmland of Harford County.
