Caveman statue.

Natural Stone Bridge and Caves Park

Definitely worth the stop if going to the Lake George area. Wear sneakers, as there is lots of climbing and wet areas.

Carved giant statue.

Natural Stone Bridge and Caves

The wooden giant is the mascot of the park and caves. Emily and James Austin stand with the carved giant, Stone Bridge and Caves, Pottersville, 2007.

Natural Stone Bridge and Caves

Billed as the only cave attraction in the Adirondacks, the brochure features their cartoon mascot, a bald caveman clutching a wooden club in one hand and a purple amethyst crystal in the other. The Northeast isn't known for particularly expansive, deep or beautiful caves, and that fact that this tour is "self-guided" betrays a glacially carved passage system that can't can't be particularly deep or even far from a source of daylight. Visitors are encouraged to make up for it by panning for semi-precious minerals, or having a geode custom-sliced in the gift shop.
