It was a short walk to the rock field, and it was very cool to climb over the rocks, hitting them with hammers and seeing which ones made a ringing sound. It was very cool! It was a simple relaxing activity for an afternoon! There is another trail to a waterfall, but unfortunately, due to very dry conditions, there was... More

My husband and I visited this little park solely because we'd heard about the rocks that ring when hit with a hammer. After a visit to a park south of Ringing Rocks (Lake Nockamixon) we had some time left and drove north to see if the rocks really do ring when hit with a hammer. And they do! The rock... More

VPlease - go before you ery much enjoyed the ride up to this park. And the ride back too. There are a few routes to drive, and we took a different one each time. That was very enjoyable. Once there however, would have liked to have seen some sort of map of the park displayed for all. We forgot about... More

We went here today with my 13-year-old son and his friend. They enjoyed climbing over the rocks with an assortment of hammers and trying out the various rocks. The one that made the best sound was a narrow hammer that was almost pointy. The parking lot gets crowded, but don't worry - you won't have to wait long for someone... More

Amazing place to see. Besides the rock formations there is a waterfall . The fall was mostly dried up but made it great to hike.

Hubby has apparently always wanted to go here. I'd never heard of it. So, on the way back to CT from PA we stopped. It's only about 5 minutes walk from the carpark. Definitely wear decent shoes (no flip flops, sandals, etc.) since you have to be strategic about where you step. He did bring a hammer to bang on... More

We had a hard time locating this park. Once we finally did, we were disappointed. While it is interesting to hear the rocks chime when you hit them in just the right spot, when I returned home, I found out by hitting my granite kitchen countertop it resulted in the same sound! Anyway, the interesting part of the trip is... More

Nice area to stroll around and relax with nature. The parking lot fills but you don't have to wait long for people to leave. There are bathroom facilities by the parking area. It's a relatively short stroll to the ringing rocks. I would saw it's not really great for those that have trouble walking, but it's also not real far,... More

Took kids here and brought hammers (we did our research!) and they had a blast! There's a picnic area where you park and a few trails here and there. Once you're at the rocks, though you really need to be careful to keep your footing. It's very easy to twist an ankle, so you're climbing rocks at your own risk.... More

Very nice place if you are looking for a short family trip. Don't forget to bring hammer(s). Rocks indeed make very musical sound when striked on. A small waterfall is also worth visiting. Shoes are a must and need to be careful when walking on the rocks.
