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.

The field of rocks is amazing! Bring your hammers (one for each person) and find the rocks that ring like chimes! Fun for all ages! Be sure to walk further down the path to the small waterfall. It's really very lovely. The parking area for this place is not the easiest to find. Know where you're going ahead of time.... More

A friend and I were driving through the area and made a detour to check this place out. It's just outside of a little town, down a remote road. You find a little dirt parking lot, which is nothing spectacular and a trail. In about a quarter mile it takes you to the ringing rocks, but I'm not sure where... More

The field of rocks (boulders) is a good excursion for older kids and nimble adults with good balance, especially if you're carrying a hammer in one hand. Wearing sneakers or hiking shoes is a wise decision. This neat place in the woods gives you horizontal rock climbing experience as you find the perfect set of boulders (with the right pitches)...

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
