From the Muddy Creek Falls website in part: Muddy Creek Falls in Garrett County is the state's highest free-falling waterfall. The height of the falls is approximately 60 feet. Muddy Creek Falls has developed in the Pottsville Formation, which consists mainly of cross-bedded sandstones and more easily eroded siltstones and shales. These rocks date to the Pennsylvanian Period and are about 300 million years old.
