Swallow Falls State Park

My favorite outing of our stay in Deep Creek was to Swallow Falls State Park. We went for a hike there and got to experience some great natural beauty and fun. First stop - Muddy Creek Falls.

We then hiked along the river, stopping to climb around on the rocks occasionally.

Here are the four of us at Lower Swallow Falls. The others had just headed back to the cars to get Charlie home for a nap.

The last stop on our hike was also the best in my opinion. Tolliver Falls has this serene pool of water at the bottom of the small falls. And the best part was it was mostly empty of other people. We stayed and played here for a long time.

The 3 of us stood at the top of Tolliver Falls as water rushed over our feet.

The girls spent much of the time there excitedly playing with mud.

Molly found a good place to sit.

If you are in the area and like the outdoors, I highly recommend Swallow Falls. It’s beautiful, and a lot of fun.
