If you're in the area, it's an interesting 1-2 hour activity that the kids will like. You don't really go in the cave and the trails are not a problem for kids. My daughter enjoyed the panning for gems activity at the end.

A little pricey, but beautiful place. Phenomenal selection of crystals, and rough gems. The disc golf course needs some imagination- most of the holes are in one place. I would say that it is an intermediate hike, not for anyone who has trouble walking- lots of inclines. We had a great time here!

I visited the caves as a child and enjoyed bringing my children. The admission price is reasonable (14 per person over 12). The trails are rocky and there are a lot of stairs so you need stable shoes to manage. Lovely caves, waterfalls and rock formations.

The location is just over an hour from Albany, NY, which makes it perfect for a short day trip. The staff were polite and helpful. My 70 -year-old mother did not wear sneakers, but was able to rent them for 50 cents. She enjoyed all of the trails as much as the kids. The kids (6 and 10) also enjoyed... More

Very cool place for adults and kids. Take lots of pix! It's beautiful. It's a self guided, well coordinated, hike around the river and into the caves. Wear sneakers!

this was a fun place to go and we actually found it by accident. it was a beautiful place and very interesting to boot. the walk around the area was well marked and the trails while a little rough weren't that bad if you paid attention. you are able to get right down to the river and to the caves...

My finance` and I visited the Natural Stone Bridge and Caves on 7-7-15. The website reads that it takes about 1.5 hours to go through. However, we took about 3 hours. We took our time going through and were able to stop and enjoy the scenery as there are many benches along the way. There are some very tricky parts... More

What better way to relax than listen to the sounds of rushing water. Outstanding natural exhibit. Was skeptical at first. But this was very nice. Well worth the $14 admission. I advise you hang on to your kids there are plenty of places to loose them here. And wear good sneakers or hiking boots. Leave the flip flops at the... More

The water level in early June was too high for us to enter the caves, but the trails were enjoyable regardless. For my 17-year-old-son, a gem and mineral enthusiast, the rock and gift shops were the highlight. Be aware that flip-flops are not appropriate footwear for the visit.
