An Adirondack Natural Wonder, Natural Stone Bridge & Caves has been owned and operated by family members since the Revolutionary War! Two oceans, billions of sea creatures, intense metamorphosis, an unusual fault and melting glaciers have exposed some of the oldest marble in North America to form some of the youngest caves in the Adirondacks.
Only 10 days till we open! Hopefully the ice will be melted.
Natural Stone Bridge & Caves The finest cave attraction in the Adirondacks, close to Lake George in Upstate New York.
Variety of full-time and part-time positions available in gift shop, rock shop, maintenance and ice cream stand. Please visit the website StoneBridgeAndCaves.com/jobs to complete an application.
Ice records the height of the Spring flood. Water now down over 10 feet in spots.
Sawmill waterfalls are flowing today!
The Caves yesterday, and today.
On top of Green Hill, the highest point of our 14 miles of snowshoe trails. This 360 view of the Adirondacks can lift up your spirit.
Congratulations to this couple who got engaged today on our snowshoe trails... Down by the beautiful Trout Brook. 💍
With heavy snowfall during the day today expecting 10-14 inches, we will be closed today Friday Feb 25th.
We will reopen tomorrow with lots of snow on our snowshoe trails.

We dodged a bullet with this storm. While we had lots of rain, our temps were lower than predicted (and even lower than our nearby Town of Chestertown) which means we still have we snow on our trails with only a couple of bare spots on the southern slope near the start.
This also means our race on Sunday is good to go and we will appreciate the couple of inches of snow we are supposed to get on Saturday.
See the pics I took out on the trails this morning.
I do have to go back out as the high winds have blown some trees down across the trails.
Our snowshoe trails currently have a good thick hard base... so hopefully we will survive this day of rain/warmth... and with the few inches of snow at the tail end of the storm we should be in good shape for our upcoming weekend and race on Sunday. Here's keeping our fingers crossed to repeat something like this:

Oh... That was almost 100y ago... And failed.
Interesting article about the dams that never happened.
Happy Labor Day!

Ancient marble cave reflections. Can you find the elephant's head?
Dodged a bullet... We are surviving the current flood without major damage. Let the sun shine in now!
Aug 19. We are currently under flood stage and this seems to be following the same sequence of events that led to a recent 100 year flood (Halloween 2019) with a possible additional 2-4" of rain this morning it may end up catastrophic for our tour. At this point we will be open with limited tour access. Here is a video from 7am today.
So much rain, so many mushrooms!
The waters of Trout Brook are flowing today!
Flood stage yesterday
Starting the cleanup from our yesterday. Lost a number of railings but the bridges survived just fine.
Yes, it has been a rainy July. Yes, our caves have been flooded. But YES, the tour is still spectacular under flood stage!
The churning waters are producing some spectacular foam toppings! The natural foam is a result of all the tannins (hemlock trees) and organic material in the water.
This is worth resharing... (Put sound on for best effect). We are popping so many lately!
