Upper Black Eddy, Pennsylvania: Ringing Rocks Park

A 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.

Ringing Rocks.

Ringing Rocks Park

Field of rocks that ring when hit. We went with hammers in hand and had a blast. There is a trail around the park. You will be doing some tricky maneuvering once you get to the boulder field to get from rock to rock, as they are at various angles and heights. Definitely advise wearing sneakers or closed-toe shoes.

Ringing Rocks Park

This works best when everyone has a hammer. We thought a metal tent stake might work, but was not as good.

When you're done playing on the rocks, follow the path to a beautiful wooded stream and waterfall. Sorry I forgot to take photos?

Ringing Rocks

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.

Ringing Rocks Park

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.

Ringing Rocks Park - Leave No Valuables in Car

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.
