Owner description: 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.

My lady friend and I spent a few hours during the autumn color peak visiting this attraction. The chasm trails were well maintained and exceptionally scenic. This is an exceptionally beautiful natural wonder and unexpected delight, and well worth a visit.

This chasm is so amazing to view. Trails are well maintained. You have a choice of difficulty and a trolley at the end if you need it. There is a charge, but you get a discount if you stay in the campgrounds there. There are many other things to do besides hike too.

We went to the Chasm over Columbus Day weekend. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I loved it. Beautiful place, well set up and one of the coolest hikes I have ever taken. I would recommend this to everyone!

It is a very cool place to visit, if you are into natural wonders. A very good destination for a day trip indeed, If you are in the Adirondacks region in Upstate New York or Burlington area. We were there yesterday and the colors of the fall foliage adds up to the beauty of the place. Worth a visit for everyone, with friends and family.

The different rocks formation with waterfalls was amazing. The walking trails gave access to view the beautiful natural wonder. The raft ride and the tubing make it more exciting and memorable.
