Ringing Rocks County Park

Ringing Rocks Road, Upper Black Eddy, 18972, PA

While in Bucks County, don’t miss the chance to witness and participate in a unique phenomenon: ringing rocks. Wear closed-toe shoes, bring a hammer and from the parking lot, follow a short, easy pathway until you reach a giant clearing, known as Stony Garden, easily recognizable by large boulders and rocks. Climb up on the rocks and look for those with smooth areas, an indication the rocks will ring when struck with the hammer. Yes, you read that correctly — the rocks will ring when struck with a hammer, sounding a bit like church bells.

The rocks are part of a small, worldwide collection that creates musical sounds when struck. Similar rocks can be found in England, Australia, Montana and New Jersey.
