Swallow Falls State Park

Swallow Falls State Park is a Maryland state park in Garrett County, in the United States, 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,[3] as well as smaller waterfalls on the Youghiogheny River and Tolivar Creek.[4] The park is notable for its stand of old Hemlock trees,[5] some more than 300 years old, one of the few remaining in the state.

In the summer of 1921, calling themselves the vagabonds, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone camped at Muddy Creek Falls.[6]
