Description

Swallow Falls State Park is a Maryland state park in Garrett County, Maryland, in the United States. Swallow Falls State Park is located nine miles (14 km) north of Oakland, Maryland on the west bank of the Youghiogheny River. The park contains Maryland's highest free falling waterfall, the 53-foot (16 m) Muddy Creek Falls, as well as smaller waterfalls on the Youghiogheny River and Tolivar Creek. The park is notable for its stand of old Hemlock trees, some more than 300 years old, one of the few remaining in the state.

In the early 20th century, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone would often camp at Muddy Creek Falls. "Just west of the Chesapeake Bay watershed, in Maryland’s Swallow Falls State Park, an ancient hemlock forest, moist and sensitive to fire, provides a chance to experience a cool, dark woodland, with deadfalls of centuries-old trees."

The park contains semi-primitive campsites, a picnic area with a pavilion and playground, as well as approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) of hiking trails.
