Upper Black Eddy, Bucks County, Pennsylvania
Ringing Rocks State Park in PA is definitely an interesting place to visit. The reason it is called Ringing Rocks is if you hit a rock with a hammer or another rock it makes a ringing sound, almost like a bell, but to me it sounded more like pots and pans being hit with a spoon (something my kids loved to do as toddlers). My boys were laughing that this could be a place of a true “Rock” concert. The field of rocks is quite large, and fun to climb on. There are quite a few theories for how and why this field formed, and where the rocks came from.
The entire experience was really weird and fun. It was an interesting (and a bit creepy) experience for all. Hopping across giant boulders while hitting them with hammers is fun anytime.
Here is some MORE INFO about the place. One more website right HERE.
After we hopped on rocks we took a nice hike down to the waterfalls, which happen to be the largest waterfalls in Bucks County.
On our first trip we went for a family trip, just us. It was May 2012, and the waterfalls were somewhat dry. We had a great time. However, on October 2013 we went with a group of friends. The waterfalls were amazing and beautiful! Lots of water! My boys really enjoyed the company of their friends as they climbed down on rocks to the base of the falls, where they found a small area to splash in. I swear, my kids find water to splash in everywhere we go!!! It was an absolute blast. On the way back we stopped at the Homestead General Store: 1650 Bridgeton Hill Rd, Upper Black Eddy, PA 18972 for some coffee and sandwiches. They make a good coffee! Here is their WEBSITE.
Definitely check this place out. It was an amazing trip both times we went.
