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.

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
