Natural Bridge State Park, North Adams

(4.4/5 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.

  • Almost at the end of the Mohawk Trail, on the west side of the route you will find a state park with a natural bridge. This is a large marble stone over a canyon. The canyon itself is very deep. Pretty to look at. Here we have a walk around the canyon. You will then back again on the access road. Pretty to look at.

  • Looks more like some old Marble quarry past its prime , nicely converted into a river-dam like structure. But its a treat to eyes. Looks stunningly beautiful.
  • Beautiful spot. Well worth the trip for history and nature/landscape/geology buffs.
  • I believe it would have been better if the water level was higher but was a neat little place to visit.
  • Been there several times. Discover something new every time.
  • Such a cool place, not too crowded. Kind of a hike, but a must see if you're in the area.
