We walked in after an overnight snow. The gates were locked so no cars could drive to the top of the hill where the ravine and bridge is found. Private, beautiful, just a couple... read more

We went in April so we were the only ones there. There are a lot of man-made walkways so it's not as beautiful a hike compared to other places you can visit in the Berkshires. Other than walking over the natural bridge made of marble, there isn't much natural bridging to do. There is a large grassy area for the... More

We walked in after an overnight snow. The gates were locked so no cars could drive to the top of the hill where the ravine and bridge is found. Private, beautiful, just a couple of dog walkers. The ravine was cut by a small stream through marble bedrock deposits, and it is dramatic -- 8 feet wide and 60 feet... More

The park is a nice well-tended respite from civilization, with signs that help recall the area's history as a mill town and marble quarry. The natural bridge itself is quite striking and it's wonderful to watch the water where it's smashed against the rocks for centuries!

Went for a foliage viewing tour on Sunday and stopped at Natural Bridge State Park along the way. It was Oct 23rd and the park was closed for the season, so the gate was closed at the entrance. There was still parking at the base and we notices many people parking and heading in, so we figured it was okay.... More

Huge and Beautiful white marble amphithéâtre style formation precedes the walk up to the natural bridge. Only a small portion of the bridge remains but there are plenty of other water worn formations to marvel at. Worth the trip if you're vacationing in the area. We were staying at RCI's Vacation Village.

...but it is worthwhile to stop and visit. A combination of man-made (an old marble quarry) and natural wonder (a rock formation towering above a natural chasm) this state park is well worth the stop.

It is a unique view of natural stone that has been quarried. It has a lot of old walkways and bridges to see. You can be done in no more than 1-2 hours. Not a repeat visit. $5 to park. If you are here for a few days worth a drop in, otherwise, maybe not?

We visited on a misty September day. We enjoyed our walk along the path and the views of the falls. The marble is big hunks of natural rock, white with dark streaks, not polished sculpture. I wouldn't make this a destination goal, but it's worth a stop if you're in the area.
