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.
Just went to these falls yesterday. Great short hike with a nice waterfall. The water flow right now is perfect for some great pictures. If you cross the stream using the rocks, use the one closest to the falls. There are more rocks and they are easier to navigate across. There were no crowds yesterday just a few couples and a family. They were all nice enough to wait until I got all the pictures I wanted before moving in to get their pictures.
