Ringing Rocks of Bucks County Pa

Post by yechave »


Ringing Rocks Park is a 128 acre park nestled in the woods in Upper Black Eddy. Located within the park is a field of boulders, about 7-8 acres in size, that have an unusual property. When the rocks are struck with a hammer or another rock, they sound as if they are metal and hollow and ring with a sound similar to a metal pipe being struck. The park also has Bucks County's largest waterfall.

It is odd that this one area seems to be so devoid of life, both flaura and fauna. While the surrounding area is thickly wooded one has to look hard to even see a weed growing in the crevices. The boulder field itself is supposedly 10 feet thick and devoid almost completely of soil--the boulders are said to sit on top of bedrock. It is odd if true, since one would expect the entire field to be quickly buried in leaf litter after just a few years considering the amount of trees surrounding it.

I wonder if this was the site of the world's first rock concert . . .

Sounds like an excellent ride, maybe, I'll cruise out that way this weekend. This is, if it stops raining by then. We've been having rain here for at least five days straight.
