Cunningham Falls State Park Special Events

Save the Date for our 2021 Events!

  • First Day Hike: African American Cemetery Trail - January 1
    - Cunningham Falls State Park: Catoctin Furnace Village

    Socially distance yourself this new year by joining us for your first hike of 2021. We recommend the brand new trail funded by the Catoctin Furnace Historical Society, the African American Cemetery Trail. Interpretive panels along the trail tell you the story of the land and most importantly of the people who were enslaved to work it.

    Parking is available at the Manor Area of Cunningham Falls State Park. Follow the Catoctin Furnace Trail to reach the African American Cemetery Trail.

    For those that can’t hike over the footbridge, parking is available at the Catoctin Furnace on Route 806.
