This is an unusual attraction that will keep you amused for a while. There is a field of large boulders with almost no vegetation and some of the boulders sound like a bell or a large piece of metal when struck by a hammer. Search on YouTube for some videos of people whacking the boulders and you can hear them... More

Its a bit tricky to navigate a boulder field when covered in ice and snow but I traveled quite a ways to see it and threw caution to the wind. The sounds were pretty cool. The farther out in the field, the more rocks that "ring". Just make sure the rock your trying to ring is resting on another boulder,... More

I have been to Ringing Rocks park several times over the years. I've seen many families show up without hammers! The whole point of going there is to climb out into the rock field and hit the rocks with a hammer to see which ones ring. There is a trail down to the waterfall area that is definitely worth taking... More

beautiful park but wish there was a posted map or trail markers so we could have fully enjoyed all it had to offer.

What a weird site.... in the middle of a forest of trees, a boulder & rock field. How did it get there? Some say from a glacier way back when.... Make sure you have a hammer. The rocks have different "notes". Some will just "thud". The fun is finding which ones will ring and all of the different sounds you... More

My husband and I took a trip to the park without our kids and we will definitely be going back with them. Having been to Boulder Field at Hickory Run State Park (in White Haven, PA), this field of rocks was much smaller, but it has the "ringing effect" not found anywhere else. Bring a hammer or two along! It... More

Much smaller than I expected. Fun to see the little kids' excitement when they heard the ringing of hammers as they approached from the parking lot. A short walk to the rock field in the middle of the woods. Many rocks have worn spots where they have been struck with hammers. It sounds like a blacksmith's shop!

It is a nice place to visit for a couple of hours. Hopping from rock to rock is a little demanding. The falls are not to be missed and an easy stroll. Cross over and walk up river for some beautiful spots.

Fun day outdoors! It's amazing how many different tones you can get from all of the boulders. Wear sturdy shoes because the boulder field is vast and you might have to do some leaping from rock to rock. Don't limit yourself to the rocks though. The nature walk is lovely with waterfalls, cascades, tiny islands and pools with fish. It... More

Cool how all these rocks just appeared in this one place. There was a big crowd of people making music on the rocks. Even though we didn't know each other we had a fun time looking a the perfect ring.
