I found this place in Tripadvisor and I am happy I followed the recommendations. The bridge is beautiful and the dam is neat. It is a fee of $5 parking, however, we visited Sunday and they were not collecting the fee.

Heard about this from a local and so glad I went. This was my favorite place I went to see in the area. The gorges and natural marble bridge are gorgeous and fascinating.

She saw the sign and asked. we went in and I told her about it. She, my hiking partner and best friend and I had a blast. We both love nature and hiking and this place is exceptional. And well maintained I might add.

Came for the rock formations, ended up really loving the old-school graffiti carved into the marble all around the site. It's impressive to see what this brook has done over time, but it's easy to miss the Natural Bridge aspect of this site, as it's...More

We were visiting the area and stopped into this park. It is interesting, well maintained, and there are terrific placards that tell its story -- well worth stopping in. Maybe 1 mile total walking distance, and great combination of natural beauty and learning opportunity. Geologists...More

The rock formations here are interesting. There is a little bit of walking involved. In typical Massachusetts fashion everything is roped off.

A few years back we parked below the gate and hiked in off-season. I don't recall if there was signage discourging that but I do not beleive there was. It's not a short hike, and it is all uphill, though :)
