Ausable Chasm

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.

You can only get the general ticket or get a combined ticket for rafting, tubing, or adventure hiking. It is about 2 miles one way and you can take the shuttle bus back to the parking lot.

We did not know how if the rafting will wet the clothes or not, so we did not get the rafting ticket. If I knew that it only has a small section on white water, and no worry to get wet, I would have gotten a rafting ticket too.

The trail is very easy, but some places are very narrow and have stairs. Not good for wheel chair access.

Ausable Brewing Company

Reviewed By Mike R - Shelburne, Vermont

This place really exceeded expectations. Great beers (they have root beer and ginger beer for the kids and non-alcohol drinkers), and a couple of great food trucks (serving ridiculously fresh meet and veggies sourced from farms a stone's throw away), a pavilion with music, and just kept filling up with locals. People bringing kids, dogs. Had live music outside. Corn hole and foosball games, great spots to sit outside, friendly staff. What's not to love? Want a fun, friendly atmosphere with local flavor? This is it! NOTE: CASH ONLY, only open Thurs.-Sun., and seasonal.

Just did the Ausable Chasm ropes course and it was near by. It was really cool how they set it up. They had a person there to do Q&A and had a short film talking about slavery and discussing the various stances on the subject by different groups.

Alice Falls

Reviewed By MaureenU710 - Enola, Pennsylvania

If you use your GPS to get here, you'll miss it if you're not careful. It's down a dirt path and the sign was partially covered by vines. It was a small waterfall that you could climb down the rocks to view. There were a few warning signs, but they were covered up. It was a great place to stretch your legs and enjoy a little nature.

Ok folks this is one of those farms that have blown me away each time I get some of their meats. Fresh is their hallmark! Variety of cuts in beef, lamb, veal, chickens, pork are insane. Professional butchers, friendly, clean, easy access, Farm to table cuts..
