These Amazing Ringing Rocks In Pennsylvania Remain Unexplained By Science

Science has answered a lot of our biggest questions. Questions such as, how did the universe begin? What kinds of dinosaurs once roamed in my backyard? How many calories is in this bowl of pasta? Where did I put my glasses? (Ok, science is still working on that last one.)

However, there is a popular state park in Bucks County, Pennsylvania that holds a secret to which even science hasn’t found the key. Ringing Rocks State Park includes a field of boulders that emit a ringing sound when struck with a hammer or fist. There are a few locations throughout the world that have ringing rocks, more formally known as sonorous or lithophonic rocks, though they are pretty rare.

In the video below, you can watch Road Trippers visit the park and try the rocks out for themselves.
