Natural Bridge State Park, North Adams
(4.3/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Its natural bridge, which spans Hudson's Brook, was formed by glacial melt by 11,000 BCE, from 550 million year old bedrock.

Formerly the site of a marble quarry (1810-1947) and privately-owned tourist attraction (1950-1983), the site became a state park in 1985. The arch and associated quarry have long attracted attention from hikers, including Nathaniel Hawthorne in 1838, who wrote of it (among other local features) in his An American Notebook.
