The first land purchases for what is now Rocks State Park began in 1951. Originally slated to be Deer Creek State Park, these were the first land purchases made by the State of Maryland for the express purpose of creating a park. Kilgore Falls Rocks has 855 acres of dense forests and massive boulders rising above Deer Creek. The King and Queen Seat, once a ceremonial gathering place of the Susquehannock Indians, is a natural 190 foot rock outcrop. This cliff, reached by scenic trails, affords a view of the rolling hills and farmland of Harford County. Also preserved on park property are many structural remains from the days when the Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad wound its way through Rocks, helping the farms and quarries of Northern Harford County to prosper. See the park map for more information.

Very short and easy trail, but the terrain does become increasingly rocky and uneven the closer you want to get to the falls.

love to this Trail but it's a lot more challenging I would rate it more moderate and it's good for kids up to the Waterhole in the waterfall but past that it's an awful lot of vertical climbs.

Easy, short hike to the overlook. Went while it was raining so we had the place to ourselves, but climbing on the rocks was a little scary (wouldn't recommend!)

Quick and easy walk ending in a cool stream area great for kids and dogs to play. Not hard to follow the path. Not jogging stroller compatible, there are some pretty narrow areas.
