The Falling Branch Area of Rocks State Park is a 67 acre parcel of land which is home to Kilgore Falls, a scenic and tranquil section of Falling Branch, a tributary of Deer Creek, which is tucked back into the ravines of Northern Harford County, creating Maryland's second highest vertical drop waterfall. This non-developed, environmentally sensitive area has a serene hiking trail leading back to the waterfall. Pets are allowed but must be on leashes at all times.

Easy access+ beautiful area+falls= too many people. I like kids and don't mind a crowd, but this was too much. Small area to swim near falls full of rude kids. went around 4 pm thinking that families with little children would be on the way out, and they were but they were quickly replaced by teens. Might try again after school starts. Very, very cold. I am an avid creek swimmer, this was really cold. There are many more trails to explore in the park and near the falls, really nice area will go back.

Its a great place, but wayyyy too many people at the falls. It's the grand central station of waterfalls.
