About Natural Bridge State Park
Natural Bridge State Park is a small state park with scenic views and unique geologic features. The park is open from mid-May thru mid-October. At the top of the entrance road, visitors will arrive at a large parking lot and an expansive lawn. This area has picnic tables and grills, perfect for a short pitstop in Western Massachusetts. A wide, family-friendly walking trail leaves from this area and follows the ridgeline of an old quarry. On this trail, visitors will see a tall cliffside with views of the Berkshires beyond.
After walking along the cliff, visitors will notice a marble waterfall flowing from the park's artificial pond. A small brook then travels through a 60-foot gorge. Numerous trails will bring visitors along the top of this gorge, where they can watch and hear the mesmerizing rush of water below. The water eventually flows underneath North America's only white marble arch, formed from the glaciers over 10,000 years ago.
There are also easy hiking trails that spread throughout the park.
Visitors should drive up the road to the parking lot when the gate is open between 9:00am and 4:30pm. There is a parking fee inside the park. Visitors can also walk up the park's road if the gate is closed.
