A more recent acquisition, 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 waterfall. This non-developed, environmentally sensitive area has a serene hiking trail leading back to the waterfall.

3.5 miles of scenic hiking trails offer steep to moderate changes in elevation.

Trails connect various points of interest

The conditions of the trail varies.

The area is habitat for white-tailed deer, wild turkey, red fox and woodland birds, as well as some lovely wildflowers...

Kilgore Fallls, 19 feet tall, is the second highest natural vertical waterfall in Maryland.
