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. More tours and adventures than any other Adirondack natural attraction including: float tours (via raft), tubing, rappelling, rock climbing, lantern tours and the all new Adventure Trail (via feratta/cable course). Great options for families of all ages as well as for the more adventurous! Cafe, gift shop, campground, cabins & motel on-site.

After 5 decades of traveling, we are wary of commercial outdoor attraction that have gaudy signs. However, the promise of a good walk with interesting geology convinced us to overcome our apprehensions, and we are VERY glad we did. This river chasm has been a...More

Enjoyed the sights and overall experience. Our family did the adventure trail and premium package. The rope course/adventure trail was lots of fun but the waiting an hour to be in a raft that doesn't really do anything more than the tubes was a bummer.

Nice excursions with young kids! Easy to walk and not too long! Very impressive to see the elephant head walking down the river!

This was a beautiful sight to see, and will take you about 3 hours. I thought the attraction was larger, but it's only 2 miles long. We camped at the campground and walked down the street to the chasm. We wore our swimsuits with clothes...More

You can take the rim walk for the 3-year old. The stairs walk requires more coordination. We went there when our twins were 6 and took the stairs and bridges walk (lower walk) and they did great. The rim walk is a walk... More

We had changed in the bathroom of the center before and after a bus ride to the start. A waterproof bag w a towel (and a beer) would've been a great addition. Esp since you're in line for a bit before getting on the river.
