Hit the Rocks
Ringing Rocks in Upper Black Eddy is among Bucks County's odder destinations. Bring a hammer, pack a picnic lunch, and go make music in this unusual and fascinating field of boulders that “ring” when struck. After that, Bucks County’s largest waterfall is just a short hike down the trail. All ages will appreciate this unique geologic formation in the heart of Bucks County!
