Frederick and Western Maryland Sights

Swallow Falls State Park

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

At Swallow Falls State Park, paths wind along the Youghiogheny River, past shaded rocky gorges and rippling rapids, to a 53-foot waterfall. One of Maryland's hidden gems, the park is also known for its assemblage of 300-year-old hemlocks and for excellent camping, hiking, and fishing facilities.
