With summer finally here and the kids going stir crazy in the house (not to mention their mother!) I decided it was a good day to load everyone up and go to one of my favorite places in Harford County, Kilgore Falls, for the day.
Kilgore Falls, also known as Falling Branch, is part of Rocks State Park in northern Harford County. The 23 acre tract of land containing the falls was purchased by the state in 1993 with some help from the students of North Harford High School. It is the only waterfall in Harford County.
The falls is an awesome place to cool off for a couple of hours. There is a nice (albeit short) hike in to the falls and trails that take you up to the top of the falls. It can get crowded on weekends, but rarely so on weekdays. There was also a ton of “fools gold” in the creek that kept the boys busy competing to find cooler chunks in rocks than their brother.
