Short walks around the park, great views for everyone. Clean well maintained. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy nature's beauty.

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!

We were in North Adams in April so the park was not officially open so you couldn't drive to the parking lot. We just walked in from parking below. This is a small park. It was interesting to see how the water had eroded the stone. The marble left behind in the quarry was beautiful. There are picnic tables and... More

Even in a spring/winter day this was worth visiting, and I am pleased a resident of North Adams recommended it. I bet during real spring and summer it really is lovely.

We went in the winter, when the park was technically closed, so the visitor center was not staffed and we were the only ones there. It was cold and snowy, but we walked all the paths. It's an interesting place that's worth seeing, and you only need an hour or so. The natural bridge itself isn't much, but the sculptured... More

This is one of my favorites parks. It's a small state park situated close to Downtown. You can see the big marble waterfall, the very small marble natural bridge, amazing rock formations, quiet place with the interesting children's statues or you can go to the short natural trail. It's a good place for everybody - for adults, for children, for... More

We live in the area and often take guests with kids to this pretty spot.There are steps and walking but most children can manage it.

The marble waterfall is nice. The bridge really isn't much, but the rock formations around it are worth exploring. Everything is close to the parking. We agree that an hour is plenty of time to spend here.
