Ausable Chasm, open since 1870, is the oldest and largest natural attraction in the Adirondacks. More than 10 million visitors have explored the chasm on the well-maintained scenic nature trails. Scenic vistas, bridges and stairs throughout provide stunning views of the chasm and amazing waterfalls.

We opted not to pay almost $20 a person to walk to The private area! Glad we did! We still got Great views and pictures from the Bridge that crosses the River! It is spectacular! The power of the River is on full display!

We stumbled upon this gem. Beautiful place! Well worth the money. Amazed at the amount of work put in to the trails. Not recomended for those who have fear of heights, but perfect for thrill seekers.
