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.

Great place to bring friends and family We were enjoying this place with 4 adults 2 teenagers and 1 child age 8. Safe enough . Make sure you empty your bladder before going into the adventure. No restroom at the chasm.

Have visited the Chasm several times and never disappointed. Awesome natural beauty with lots of options for thrill seekers. Anything from a leisurely walk through an area carved out over millions of years with many photo opportunities to rock climbing sheer cliffs. Something for everyone!

I agree with allot of the other reviews, Ausable Chasm is worth the money to explore but I wouldn't cross the ADK to get here. We've done the Ithaca gorges, Watkins Glenn and Letchworth State park and could see were people could feel this is...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.
