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...more

I am traveling for work and have been here a few times for the trails! Today I did the Adventure Trail with Ernest as our guide! Such an adrenaline fun time! Ernest was a blast and made the trip! I will go back over and...More
This place is very beautiful. However we should all be outraged this isn’t owned by the state or national government. This is privately owned going back hundreds of years which is a disgrace. The wait is long to get in. The staff selling tickets downright...More
The 3 or so hours we spent here in the classic tour option were well worth the time and ok for the price of $30/person. The chasm is beautiful and our yellow trail hike was very calm and scenic. There was a really long wait...More
Basically a very commercialized hiking trail. We did the basic hike around the chasm which was on well maintained trails and the scenery was beautiful. But they do offer the adventure trail and floating as an option, which looked fun if we would have had...More
Bummer that they charge $18 to just walk down to see a closer look. They say "it includes 5 miles of trails" for that price. Well...we just want to see the main attraction and sucks to be charged to see this beauty. We just enjoyed...More
We did the adventure trail with our 9 yr old today. He loved it and I loved that we all got out in one piece 😁 it was way more challenging than I thought it would be - 4 times across the canyon holding steel...More
The area is stunning, but way over priced and rated for the rafting/river float. The line is super long to get in line to purchase. You have to wait to get in line. The more than a mile hike is beautiful but much longer in...More
Trying to travel on a fixed budget, we chose to explore Ausable Chasm on the foot trail. It’s still pretty pricey, though, for just walking on the paths. No discounts for AAA or AARP. The pathways are well maintained for an easy walk. Be sure...More
Beautiful views along yellow or green (easiest trail)... and the float trip is exactly that... but on a hot day, lots of fun! be sure to wear bathing suit or shorts ... something' that won't freak you out if they get a tiny splash. Light...More
We did the adeventure trail which was not correctly described in words or pictures on their website in my opinion. It is physically challenging and mentally frightening!!! Tightrope walks across the chasm and scaling the walls for over an hour non stop. I only made...More

I would not take a baby on a raft. There is a very small part where you do go thru a rapid. The other part is the life jacket, baby should not wear a life jacket that they have. My daughter is 40 lbs and that was a good size... More

Cost depends on what you want to do. The plain entry just let's you walk the gorge trail which ends with a short ride on the river and that's not too pricey. For the trips with ropes and stuff where you zig zag over the river between the cliffs the cost is considerably more. Do bring your own food and water. There is a snack bar but it isn't cheap. Check website for various prices.
