I was surprised by how enjoyable this was. My grandfather always referred to it as a jip joint, but we really liked it. It's perfect if you have kids and want to teach them about rocks and minerals. They have some interactive mineral panning. The caves themselves aren't huge and the bridge is a bridge so much as it an... More

A few weeks ago my friend and I got to try the groomed snowshoe trails. Some long up hill walks but the views were worth it. Also, very flat trails to try. For more advanced they provide more challenging up behind the store- I / we did not try these yet. open on weekends for snowshoeing! they do provide some... More

Didn't know what to expect but wanted to try a new location to snowshoe. The setting is rustic (portapotty, no food or drinks, but with a small gift shop and snowshoe rental) but the trails are amazing! The hosts, Dee and Greg, have clearly marked every trail and the maps are extremely accurate. There are many locations with benches, and... More

This is truly a unique and beautiful area to snowshoe. The trails are extensive, overseeing not only frozen waterfalls and caves, but also gorgeous mountain vistas. This is a family run operation and they are extremely pleasant and accommodating. The trails are wide, well marked and well maintained. Each year there are more improvements that continue to make the area... More

I loved visiting this place with my son in the summer. I was happy that it was not too crowded. This is a great place to visit, even when it's hot. Under the shade of the trees, and rock croppings, it's quite cool.

The natural beauty of the Adirondacks surrounds you at Natural Stone Bridge and Caves. This is full of geological splendor. Learn about the Adirondacks and its make up. This was always a school trip for our children. If you are staying in the area in the summer, you must spend a part of your day there.

My sister and I who are not in good shape had a blast! We were able to walk up and down the stone steps and bridges with little problems. There are resting benches everywhere. It was beautiful at this time of year. There a river that has multiple small waterfalls, woods and you cross back and forth over the river.... More

Great exploring. Had a girls trip to Schroon Lake and we spent 1 day exploring the caves. Was very interesting and glad I had my good walking sneakers on!

The walk is relatively easy - there are lights carefully placed below ground to show off the attraction. The "panning" bags are *filled* with goodies (gems, shark's teeth, arrow heads) and very worth the $20. Geode Popping was fun, too!

We went to Pottersville to visit Railroads On Parade and decided to stop by the caves since we were nearby. According to the brochure it said to arrive 1 hour prior to closing which we did. Upon arriving, however, we were told the last entry was at 3:30 so we couldn't go in. I tried to talk them into letting... More
