Had such a great time climbing the rocks and taking a trek to the water fall. Such a strange place. Walk through the woods and all of a sudden it opens up into the field of rocks. You can tell which rocks ring by the way he look as they have a lot of strike marks. It very cool to... More

The rocks are really neat. Some ring-some don't. A local firefighter told us they ring because of the way they are layered & the high iron content of the ringing ones. (Nice to know what makes them ring.) The walk back to the rocks is short. The walk ON the rocks is a little tricky-you need to be good on... More

Boulder fields are always fun to navigate. But add the element of banging on rocks to find the musical ones gives this a unique spin. It's amusing to see and hear others trying to locate the ringing rocks. It's like a treasure hunt. There's also a nice hiking trail to add to your day. Beware the outhouse though...One of the...

The rocks were as awesome as the pictures we checked out on the internet before we left. No signage about the place at all. No history about who found the area and trails were traveled but not marked

Nice to bring the kids for the early part of the day. The ringing rocks are open to the sun, be sure to bring sunscreen on a sunny day. Stop by the General Store for lunch on the way home.

Make sure to wear proper shoe's & don't forget the hammer. You have to be able to climb over, on & around the rocks. This can be challenging for many. Otherwise enjoy the outdoors, the sounds & exercise on the trails. This is not a large scale park and right off a residential street.

The hike to the stones from the parking area is a short one. However, one must be a bit more physically mobile to "gambol on the stones". I am post-chemo with peripheral neuropathy and found myself stumbling quite a bit and falling a few times in spite of my appropriate gear. A few scrapes and sore muscles was worth the... More

Beautiful experience. Don't forget your sneakers or hiking boots. Bring food to enjoy a picnic before you pick a trail.
