In Pylesville, Maryland
A view of Kilgore Falls, the second-tallest vertical drop waterfall in the state of Maryland. Second-tallest yes, even though it’s just 17 feet tall. Nonetheless, it’s still quite serene and picturesque, with its small, rocky pool and lush surroundings. Its height makes it pretty easy to climb to the top of the falls. On the left side, just out of the frame of this shot, there’s a natural, stone “staircase” carved (naturally or human-made?) into the cliff-face that doesn’t take too much to scale so you can stand on the top ledge of the creek that feeds the falls and see the view of the forested area. A small but mighty waterfall, worth the short hike to check it out.
