They are still work on the site. There is no parking area as of yet. Last time seen an article was asking people not to visit for safety reasons, needed to get trails made and parking lot. Doing work on it when have volunteers available. Thought it mention would open in Spring of 2016.

Went to Brookville around 1:30 PM, at least 8 or more cars parked along Rt.28 site.  Know they have to make walkways, people have donated use of backhoes and other equiptment for the clearing of ground.

looks like a lot of walking to get there   Is that true?

 Not really, there will be a parking lot there.  It is located between Rt.28 and Rt.322, and between the Industrial Park Rd.(Allegheny Health Center) and big red brick church on Rt.28.      TD- they are still working on this . On Saturday parking lot had piles of dirt and stone dump there.

These are some of the pics I took last fall. The Boy Scouts had a camporee. We stayed at the fairgrounds and walked to the rocks Sat. afternoon to help finish up a couple merit badges. The large rock that Ken Burkett is standing on in the one pic is covered in scripture. Pretty impressive. The rocks with "Success" & "Faith" are where people went to pray for those things specifically. There is a rock or two with some words crossed out & some symbols similar to swearing. Ken said they guessed that was when Mr. Stahlman was not permitted to marry the woman he loved and was angry!

This rock shelter at Scripture Rocks Park in Pine Creek Township was recently excavated by volunteers from the North Fork Chapter of the Pennsylvania Society for Archeology. The shelter had sustained a partial collapse of the ceiling at some point.
