Upper Black Eddy, Pennsylvania: Ringing Rocks ParkA four-acre pile in the middle of the woods, where boulders, when struck, emit a sound more musical than the typical rock thud (if you remember to bring your hammer). But Mom says I have to quit hitting everything with a hammer.

Visitor Tips and News About Ringing Rocks Park
Ringing Rocks is a spooky, barren field filled with boulders that ring when hit with a hammer. Hence the name. The entire field is devoid of vegetation which adds to its strangeness. There are trails to hike and a lonely waterfall. Local lore claims that Lenni Lenapes avoided the area because of its evil spirits.[Susan Hunt, 08/05/2016]
Rocks are huge! Spent over an hour climbing around and banging on them. Bring hammers and a large magnet to get things dropped between rocks. Follow trail to left to get to the rocks. Follow trail to right to get to large rock with graffiti and waterfall. Just went July and there was a little water.[CJ, 07/21/2014]
I just want to warn prospective visitors. My wife and five others visited Ringing Rock park. While they were scouring the rocks fields, someone smashed her driver side window and stole some valuables. The Ranger that it was reported to says it happens all the time. So, be wary of being victimized in that park. I would not leave a vehicle unattended. I would not even park in the lot .... park somewhere else and walk there.[Anthony, 06/19/2011]
My favorite place in the whole world! Went here a lot when we were children. People used to come on weekends and play music together mixing several types of music with the rock sounds.
Rocks are amazing phenomenon but don't miss the waterfall and walking paths. Mom used to paint here while we splashed around in the water.[Lauren, 10/18/2010]

Awesome park! Nice little stroll to a water fall and a cool rock covered in graffiti. We especially like Ringing Rocks Park in the Spring or Fall, when it's not too cold, but there's ice on the falls![Suzette Wyland, 08/12/2010]
