Beautiful place, best picture was on a foggy morning. You can fish or take a walk. Best place to try and park is by the bridge.

My husband and I went here to enjoy the cool fall weather. This is a beautiful spot and is much more quite than other recreation areas we have visited (Loch Raven, Gunpowder, etc). We found some parking spots on either side of a green bridge...More

I do not believe there are Falls of any significance near the Dam. I looked on a site called "Any Place America" ... they say there are 11 Falls in Maryland, none of which are in Baltimore County. Hope this helps you.
