Lots of fun and something different as most of the reviews have indicated. Yes the port a potty is pretty bad. After seeing the rocks, keep heading down the path to the stream and waterfalls. It was an overcast day with temperatures in the low 40's but many parts of the falls were frozen. This was so spectacular and beautiful... More

Very easy to get to and nice park. Not your everyday park that is for sure. Great marked trail bringing you by all of the sites to see. Huge rock park for those who love to walk over some rocks. Be sure to bring a hammer as you will want to hit the rocks to hear them ring. Some are... More

is a great place to learn how these rocks came to be there. But know one knows why they ring when hit with a hammer there, but not if you remove one. (yea, try it, their big rocks.

Interesting field of giant boulders, but they are not smooth and easy to navigate, not for little kids

Visited in October 2014, not a far distance from the parking lot, just a little trail to get to the hot spot of the park. Make sure to bring a hammer to hear the rocks ring when you hit them! We traveled a little further down and found amazing and beautiful waterfalls, and after going around for a bit we... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this truly unique spot. It seems that millions of years ago this area use to be a glacier. When it melted, it dumped these boulders in a field. But what's unique is that if you hit them with a hammer, they have a high pitch ring to them……like iron hitting iron. Very bizarre!!! If... More

The boulder field is incredible. It's amazing what a glacier can carry and deposit. While we didn't do much climbing over the rocks, we did walk the path for awhile past the boulder field and enjoyed the fall color, falling leaves and patterns on the rocks.

This place is beautiful. Such a fun time when visiting. Lots of hiking trails to go on, and the waterfall is beautiful. Need a cute date idea? Go here. One, its free and two, its a beautiful place to go to have a little fun.

I wish that Trip Advisor would let you pick the actual year you visited but they don't. We visited close to 20 yrs ago. This was a rock field but the rocks have a capability to make sound if you bang on them. This is not the place to go if you can't walk / hike or climb over rocks.... More

The rock slide was amazing to see and well worth the short walk on the trail. There is a parking lot and I don't think the walk is more than about 1/4 mile if that. Bring a hammer and you will hear the rocks ring. We were glad we stopped by to see this wonder.
