Natural Stone Bridge & Caves Park - Snowshoeing
The massive stone bridge arch - the largest marble cave entrance in the East - dominates this spectacular display of Adirondack geology. Originally named Ponte de Dios (Bridge of God) and later described in Morse's Geography of 1790, the stone bridge has captivated visitors for over 200 years.
Take a walking stick, map, and camera, and set out on a self-guided, above-ground, natural stone step nature trail and experience up-close the many unique rock features, such as potholes, grottos, and waterfalls. Descend into lighted surface caves with raging waterfalls or tranquil dark pools. Try an "Adventure Tour" for those willing to crawl and get a bit dirty, ending with a float through Garnet Cave.

Additional activities include: gemstone mining, gold rush mine, crystal quest mine, climbing walls, 18-hole disc golf course, fish feeding, jewelry making, decorating walking sticks, or uncovering ancient bones in the dino dig.
