THURMONT, Md. (WJZ) — Swimming is now prohibited in Cunningham Falls State Park, Maryland State Park officials say.

“Low water levels caused by below-average rainfall and above-average air temperatures necessitate the closure,” park officials said.

Although swimming is not allowed, other activities can continue: hiking trails to the falls are open, picnicking, fishing and boating are allowed.
