Step back in time as you walk the nature trails through primeval Adirondack Forest. Stroll past Rainbow Falls, Elephant’s Head, Column Rock, Hyde’s Cave and the eerie quiet of Mystic Gorge. Descend hundreds of feet and walk the natural stone walkways within the Chasm and gaze upon millenniums of geologic history etched in stone. Take a scenic raft, tube or kayak adventure on the legendary waters of the Ausable River through a maze of breathtaking rock formations sculpted across eons by the river’s currents.
Ausable Chasm is as breathtaking now as it was 400 years ago when Samuel De Champlain first explored the Champlain Valley. People of all ages enjoy the natural splendor of this Adirondack wonder which began its formation during the Cambrian age – 500 million years ago! This is when the rushing water of the powerful Ausable River began cutting its way deeper into a fault in the Potsdam sandstone strata. Today a tour of Ausable Chasm is an education on Adirondack natural history and a recreational vacation rolled into one!
New at Ausable Chasm
New trails! New vistas! More spectacular scenery! Ausable Chasm is pleased to announce the opening of our much anticipated Rim Walk. Never before, throughout Ausable Chasms 134 years as a natural attraction, has any visitor been able to walk the rim and peer into the vast chasm below. Our new vistas along the rim are nothing short of spectacular and provide ample bird-watching opportunities! View the Great Blue Heron as it swoops below you through the Chasm as well as Blue Jays, Robins, and maybe a Peregrine Falcon. You’ll also have a chance to spot a Bald Eagle! Come see why our staff has nicknamed one of our new vistas On Top of the World. Just one more reason to visit Ausable Chasm this season!!!
