“Beautiful waterfalls”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

This state park is hard to find but worth the effort. The waterfalls are beautiful. Many locals go there to swim. There is a free side with a parking area and trail before you get into the park but from there you can't see the largest of the 3 falls, big muddy (which didn't look muddy at all). Dogs on leashes are allowed on the free side and in the campground but not on the trails to the falls in the park. Caution, there is a lot of walking to see the falls on uneven ground and stairs. The loop trail that goes around is very nice.

“Beautiful trails and falls”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

A lot of tree damage from Hurricane Sandy but good walking trails and two waterfalls. Wear hiking shoes as there is mud after a heavy rainfall.

“Beautiful hiking and waterfalls.”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Worth the trip...Maryland's largest waterfall. Hiking on well kept trails and swimming among. The current and rock formations. Careful!
