Boulder Field at Hickory Run State Park, Stay-cation Destination Close to Binghamton
It's Spring and Summer will be here before you know it. Are you starting to think about places to visit that are close by? Well here's one.
It's Boulder Field at Hickory Run State Park in Pa, It's about an hour and a half from Binghamton. This is where really big boulders hang out at. Some rocks as big as 25 feet high. It's what's left from the last ice age. It's many, many football fields long and wide. It also looks like a whale from the sky.
It's boulders as far as you can see. You can walk on the rocks from one edge to another. Everyone in the Pitcher family started their walk. Devon and Riley were across the field and back in no time. Tara started across and she wanted to play Hide n Seek with me. I apparently wasn't moving fast enough for her. I was taking pictures of the rocks and kids, so that I could show how big this field really was. You can't imagine how big it is until you see it.
So what does my 8 year old say to me? Hey Old Man, Man up and start walking the rocks! It sounds like a command for the field and life as well. I made it all the way across but decided to take the easy way back through the woods. That also sounds like a life lesson as well.
My Mom and Dad asked me if it is a trip to take on a motorcycle. The road you take from Hickory Run to Boulder Fields is a couple of miles long. It's unpaved but you could easily take a motorcycle ride on it. The speed limit is 25 mph, to give you an idea. It is a beautiful part of the country. When your done with Boulder Fields, there are other sights to see including Hawk Falls, I'll be telling you more about that soon.
A special thanks to Kenny Mulligan from NorhPointe for telling me about Boulder Field. Make sure you take proper footwear for your walk and enjoy a walk back into the Ice Age. Enjoy the photos of Boulder Field and Hawk Falls.
