  • It's a smaller version of Hickory run state park and Boulder field. A nice way to spend an afternoon in the woods. The trails are pretty short but there are some rugged areas especially if you go off ...  more »
  • Visited with the family while camping nearby. Kids were thrilled climbing over the field of rocks. Things to remember, bring a hammer and you need to be able to climb over the rocks not easy if you do...  more »
  • This is a county park that has an interesting feature of a boulder field you can climb on, and many of the boulders have a unique property that they produce a ringing tone when struck with a hammer or...  more »

  • This is a very cool place to stop by to hike on the rocks and to the water fall. Make sure you bring a hammer for everyone in the party. The ringing sounds the rocks make are fascinating and amazing. I have been there at least a dozen times and I still don't understand why some of the rocks ring like a bell and some don't ring. It's a wonderful place to print kids to experience.
  • The metallic sound that most rocks here make is quite facinating. Getting an hammer along is recommended. The terrain is challenging and one needs to be careful not to fall or twist an ankle. The trail to the waterfall beyond the rock area and the waterfall itself is very beautiful. The drive to the park, particularly the last five miles, which is mostly along the Delaware river, is very scenic.
  • My first visit was fun. First thing first, the parking area is very small. Maybe 25-30 cars top if everyone parked correctly. The trail to the rocks and water fall are easy to get too. A tree branch did fall down and hit us on when we were walking towards the ringing rocks. Be careful and well aware of your surroundings when walking. Overall I'll go back. It was enjoyable.
  • The place is interesting, and has a unique quality that made me curious about its existence. Along with the rocks, the waterfall area is also worth seeing. The trails are somewhat uneven and one could easily slip, trip, or twist an ankle there if not careful.
  • A very fun trip for the family and kids. There is a rock fall to climb over, as well as a challenge to find the "ringing rock". It has a flat rock river to walk up to find the old waterfall. If the river is flowing, don't worry because there is an alternate dirt path that will lead you straight to it.
