Falling Branch - Kilgore Falls
Looking for a family friendly short hike with a spectacular payoff? Look no further than Kilgore Falls, Maryland’s second-highest vertical waterfall located in Rocks State Park. Rocks State Park remains environmentally sensitive and this area in particular, the Falling Brach area, is very well maintained. This area was once a meeting place for Susquehannock Indians.
Follow in the wake of our intrepid Havre de Grace Green Team President as he navigates the trail, crosses streams, and traverses the gorge of Kilgore Falls!
Falling Branch passes through a steep gorge known as Kilgore Rocks, where the falls have developed in relatively erosion-resistant Prettyboy Schist. This formation was previously known as the upper pelitic schist of the Wissahickon formation.
