This is a tiny and sort of hard to find park that we enjoyed for its unusual rock formations and 200 year old carved graffiti. The color of the stone (white marble) makes the formations from water run-off rather ethereal and dramatic. We spent a half hour or so poking around and taking pictures from the network of viewing platforms... More

A $2 parking permit is all it costs to explore the site of a former marble quarry. Walk a well-marked and easy trail past a marble waterfall and up and down and over and under and all around the site to see how the force of water and glaciers has formed the deep chasms and a natural bridge made of...

There is not much to see or do here. The visit took less than one hour. The park was created from a marble quarry whose scar is a sad reminder of the abuse of the land.

It was amazing to see the marble in its natural state; there were so many beautiful sights here- don't forget your camera if you go!! Beautiful waterfalls, streams, rock formations; plan to spend a couple of hours here if you love nature.

We went and visited this park at the end of July. Two dollars to park and the grounds were clean and well maintained. Its small and does not take long to view. There are some great photo opportunities.

The Natural Bridge State Park is not only a beautiful place to spend the day but it can be educational as well. The ranger there had lots of information about the workings of the old marble mill; the dam itself and the surrounding area. The ranger station has lots of old photos on the walls of various aspects of the... More

This is the site of a former quarry, which will help you understand how they have a man-made dam built out of white marble! It is a scenic spot very convenient to N.Adams and has plenty of parking. The $2 parking fee is entirely reasonable. Allow yourself maybe a hour to see the entire site.

It's a small beautiful park with waterfalls and a natural bridge. I love the water gushing thru the rocks. Beautiful scenery!
