We don't let having babies in the house hold us back. Much. Taking them out hiking? Not even a second thought.
We recently meandered down to a secretive little spot called Kilgore Falls. Horror of horrors, we had to cross the Pennsylvania line into Maryland to get there. But at only 28 minutes from our house, we thought we would take the chance.
I have a thing for waterfalls, so in my opinion, this was breathtaking. I count myself blessed to live so close so we can visit again when the season changes to icicle gorgeousness.
Kilgore Falls is secretive because it is a fairly new parcel of 67 acre park land purchased by Maryland in 1993. Kilgore is the second highest free-falling waterfall in Maryland with the first being Muddy Creek out in Western Maryland.The hike back to the falls is 1.2 miles and while not stroller-able it is very doable with kids. For specifics click HERE The park is very blemish free... no porta potties, picnic tables, trail markers. Just plain jane. Perfect. Muddy Creek Falls is next on my list, but is a little more then a drive from our house and more like a whole weekend adventure. Anyone up for a hike?
The Sportsman couldn't resist seeing what was behind the falls. It was a little chilly for me to brave a swim. Oh and I had a baby attached to me.
