When you arrive, the most popular thing to do is to hike down to the waterfalls. Once you start down the trail, you can hear the roaring water! The trail continues for about 1.25 miles and has various terrain including level pathways, stairs, and some rocks. There are three waterfalls located along the trail, each varying in size. Muddy Creek Falls is a 53 feet tall and is Maryland's tallest free-falling waterfall. This picturesque landscape is a beautiful sight to see no matter the season. There is even a handicap parking area with a ramp leading down to Muddy Creek Falls so that everyone can enjoy the beauty of the park.
Another hiking trail is located in the park. This trail is a 5.5 miles long and connects the park with Herrington Manor State Park. Because it is relatively level and flat, it makes it a popular spot for hikers, cross-country skiers, and mountain bikers. There is parking available at both ends of the trail, making it easy to plan your trip.
