High Rocks

About The Area

Ralph Stover State Park is located in a gorge along Tohickon Creek in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Historically referred to as just “Stover”, it is more common in recent times to also hear called “High Rocks”. The cliffs are composed of Lockatong, Argillite and Brunswick Shale that is very brittle and friable in places. The area has a long tradition of ground up first ascents. You will still find many of these routes are available for trad but they are also increasingly popular as top ropes. There are very few sport routes.

  • There are currently no access issues.
  • On high traffic weekends in the fall and spring, the parking lot may be full. Please DO NOT park on the road. It impedes large and/or rescue vehicles from getting through so officers will issue tickets. 


EPAC is excited to spearhead the High Rocks Improvement Project. The intent of the project is to address infrastructure needs and improve the experience for all users. This includes parking, restroom facilities,  planting of native species, adding benches, fence repair and much more. Visit the project page for more details and updates.
