Ringing Rocks County Park Reviews
We spent an hour or two here, just hiking around and climbing around the boulder field. Take a hammer so you can test out the rocks! Wear good shoes. While we don't have kids, there were several famil... more »
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 »
It's one of those things that everyone has done if they grew up in the area. So if you're new, come join in. Bring a hammer and shoes or boots with good sticky soles. After a brief downhill stroll through forest, you'll come upon the giant boulder field, which because trees cannot grow through it, creates it own bright, wide clearing. Now, just step out of the woods, walk across the tops of the boulders, and keep banging on them with your hammer. They will actually ring, some even like a bell. If you're very diligent you might even find the right notes for a song. If you're not in a musical mood, just sit down and space out at the relaxing and pretty rare view.
An interesting spectacle to visit from time to time. A massive Boulder field in a mostly wooded, rural area with rocks that seem to ring and chime. Bring a hammer if you intend to really enjoy it. There is also a few picnic tables and camping a few miles down the road. If you walk downhill to the end of the rock field and through the woods there is a creek, and if it rained recently, a very nice waterfall that is a nice cool-off spot in the summer. Over the years this park has gotten significantly more popular and there is often many people there striking the rocks, and unfortunately a lot of litter, so bring a bag with you when you go.
A unique park to visit. Come equipped with a hammer and start banging on the rocks to create your own symphony! A little fun to break up the day. Nice trails around the ringing rocks phenomenon as well.
I wish the trail was longer and that they had cleared a path or something through the rocks in the middle or something. Maybe remove some rocks that don't ring to let people walk around easier. Climbing over the rocks to get to the ones near the middle that actually ring or ring better was hard and hazardous in some places. But nevertheless we had lots of fun ringing different rocks. Bring a hammer!
This park is beautiful any time of the year. Love the new trail loop around the boulder field. Thanks Appalachian Mountain Club!
