“musical rocks!”

This unique geological formation is located approximately 18 miles east of Butte and north of I-90. The rocks in this unique geologic area chime when tapped lightly with a hammer. It is believed that the ringing is a combination of the composition of the rock and the way the joining patterns have developed as the rocks have eroded away, if a boulder is removed from the pile, it doesn't ring. Please don't disturb this natural phenomenon!

You definitely need a hammer or some other solid, heavy, metal tool to really hear the sound-- it won't work with a stick. The rocks make different pitched sounds; it's super interesting!

Gravel road takes you all the way to the rocks. We had to walk the last half mile since we had driven our car in it couldn't make it all the way. My kids loved climbing on the rocks and getting them to make sounds. Definitely a good place to stop and stretch for awhile.

The road was tricky getting in. Our SUV made it most of the way. With about 3/4 mile to go we couldn't drive any farther and had to walk. Worth the trouble, very interesting site. Kids loved it. When we got to the top there was a truck that had driven in so it can be done with the right vehicle.
