The "property situated in Frederick County
3,452 acres and designated as follows, is a Type 1 State wildland" . . . "named,
'The Cunningham Falls State Park Wildland'."
"Type I wildland" means a primitive area which
by its size and location is in effect untouched by urban civilization
and can offer the experience of solitude and self-reliance.
Type I wildlands are usually lands located at higher elevations
that protect watersheds and are ecologically vulnerable to human interferences.
