This is one of the largest diabase boulder fields in the Eastern United States. There are many theories of its creation, including comets, radioactivity, etc., but no one knows for sure. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes, preferably with ankle support. My two kids, ages 10 and 8, were able to scamper across the boulders easily enough, and they loved trying to determine which rocks would ring. Why some rocks ring when struck with a hammer and others don't, is also a mystery. Follow the entrance path to the right and you'll find a waterfall and a fascinating wall of layered rock. There are a few picnic tables to enjoy your lunch and a Port A Potty. A great, FREE way to spend an afternoon.
