Cunningham Falls State Park is located in the picturesque Catoctin Mountains. It is divided into two separate but unique areas. The William Houck Area located three miles west of Thurmont on Route 77 has the lake area, falls and camping area. The Manor Area off Route 15 three miles south of Thurmont has the Scales and Tales Aviary, camping and the historic Catoctin Iron Furnace. Outdoor activity is everywhere at Cunningham Falls State Park. Leisure opportunities like swimming, hiking, fishing and canoeing are available. For those who wish to get away for either a night or longer there are campsites and camper cabins available for rental from April through October. The staff and volunteers at Cunningham Falls State Park strive to make your visit a pleasant one. If you have any questions or concerns please let us know.

Be extremely careful of the Copperhead snakes that sunbath and hang out in the cracks of the giant rocks at Bob's Hill overlook. Our group were mere inches from a decent sized copperhead and it was well camouflaged.

This trail was a perfect family hike. Our 2.5 year old was able to hike by himself and we pushed our 8 mo old in our BOB stroller. This is a stroller friendly hike for those looking for one.

The trail was a bit shorter than I'd expected. The view was beautiful however there wasn't too far to venture in this location.
