My Favorite waterfall ~ Kilgore Falls

We can’t always travel far away. Sometimes we must look down the road and travel down a path not taken often and look within your state. I have seen waterfalls in Puerto Rico, Jamaica and Ghana. It was time to find one close to home. There it was right in Maryland 50 minutes from Baltimore in Harford County. Kilgore falls is located at 1026 Falling Branch Rd, Pylesville, MD. Kilgore is a part of Rock State Park and is the second highest free-falling waterfall. Parking is limited. Before you visit please visit Maryland State Park website Rocks Falling Branch ( to help plan your visit. Due to coronavirus you must get a free parking registration pass during the peak season (late spring and summer). The hike is easy, approximately a half mile and family/dog-friendly. Halfway through the hike you can hear the waterfall. Make sure you bring clothes/waterproof shoes to get wet if you plan on getting in or close to waterfall. There is a rock path you must cross but don’t worry the water is not deep but your shoes may get a little wet. Interesting fact the movie features the waterfall in “Tuck Everlasting”. If you like wine there are a few vineyards nearby.
