Natural Bridge State Park is a 48-acre park inhabiting an abandoned marble quarry, located at 1 McCauley Road in North Adams, where young adventurers (and their parents) can traverse a half-mile of wooden walkways winding though and above dizzying geologic features and glacial chasms.
The park is open 9 am – 5 pm, Memorial Day through Columbus Day. A daily $5 parking fee for Massachusetts residents; $7 non-MA vehicles. Visitors to the park pay for parking passes at the counter inside of the Welcome Center, where there is also a small exhibit area, bathrooms and drinking fountain. The grounds are also spotted with shady, bug-free picnicking areas, alongside the rushing Hudson Brook.
The perfect kid-friendly place to recharge after exploring Natural Bridge is Pedrin’s Dairy Bar (1360 Curran Highway in North Adams).
