Although the waterfalls are gorgeous, a steep 12,50$ per person fee for only 0,5 miles is very expensive. I think the Adirondacks offers loads of simular views for free.

What a great way to spend a few hours. Easy trail alongside the falls (even the “not easy” trail is easy unless you have severe acrophobia). It’s neat to marvel at the falls (waterways high when we were there),and it’s even near to marvel at...More

This is a quick easy hike through some of the Ausable Rivers best waterfalls. We have enjoyed this hike through all seasons as they accommodate even the ice in the winter. Great for the whole family.

This is a great winter outing, hike is not strenuous and they give you yak tracks so you don’t slip or slide at all. Really enjoyed sitting by the fire and enjoying a roasted marshmallow at the end.
