Rocks the size of a car thrown like so many marbles on a carpet. Filled with iron ore, they ring like a bell if struck with a HAMMER! 15 scenic miles from New Hope, PA.

Really interesting place. Took our 3 and 8 year old kids with us and they enjoyed hitting the rocks. Bring hammers or other heavy metal tool to bang on the rocks. Bolder field is quite challenging to cross. Our 8 year old was fine, but my husband had to carry our 3 year old over many parts. I needed both... More

My son and I took two grand daughters on a half day trip to get acquainted with the place he had first visited with his school's Outdoor Club more than two decades ago. Equipped with hammers of different sizes and undeterred by spiders or the uneven terrain we banged away on the boulder field, sometimes in unison with another family... More

We arrived at this park around 10AM and found plenty of parking in the small lot. I would say if you come around 11 or noon, you will be hard pressed to find parking. There is a porta potty when you come into the park, which is great for emergencies, but do yourself a favor and stop at the general... More

We had a hard time finding this place but once we did, parked, and hiked the short walk to the hidden rock field (dirt path about a quarter of a mile from the parking.) We had brought a bag with some pvc pipe, small hammers, and a few pieces of pipe in varying thicknesses. The four kids immediately began clamboring... More

Forgive my cheese title... anyway. If you are within an hour radius of here on your travels.. it's worth a peek (If you have time to kill.) The boulder field is fascinating and it really is fun to hit the rocks.. not a lot of parking spots.. and a port-a-potty is available.. but it's a nifty place to spend an... More

Here's a unique attraction in the quaint and bucolic little town of Upper Black Eddy. An ancient boulder field where the rocks have some kind of special quality (iron content?) that makes some of them sound a musical tone when struck. We went on a recent Sunday and the parking lot was quite crowded, but we found a little nook... More

I'm not really sure if there's anywhere else in the world where you can bang on rocks that produce metallic sounds, but it's local, interesting, and has even been listed in several books. It's not as big as the boulder field by Whitehaven, but it's still a nice little park for mild hiking and jumping from rock to rock.

I discovered this park while looking for place to stretch our legs along the way to the Poconos. It seemed to fit the bill just fine, with the added bonus of a few Geocaches to find and a waterfall. It turned out to be far more entertaining than I had expected, even after reading up on it a little before... More
