“More to Explore in Keeseville!”

Step back in time as you walk our nature trails in the midst of a 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 to walk on natural stone walkways and gaze upon eons of geologic history etched in stone. Ausable Chasm is a sandstone gorge tourist attraction near Keeseville, New York. The Ausable River runs through it, which then empties into Lake Champlain. The gorge is about two miles long, and is a minor tourist attraction in the Adirondacks region of Upstate New York. It is called by some, the "Grand Canyon of the East", and is fed by the Rainbow Falls, at its southern extreme. The chasm has a continuous exposure of a section of the Potsdam Sandstone more than 160 metres (520 ft) thick, which includes, in an unpublished location, a rare, mid-Cambrian jellyfish fossil.

The admission price is a bit steep, but the walk through the chasm is incredible. Take the guided boat tour at the end of your journey, or float on tubes. They offer more difficult excursions for the adventurous. This is a great place for the family. You could easily spend half a day here. Well worth the stop for the photo ops alone.

In the earth of the Adirondack you can find this jewel. A beautiful place with great guides. You can take the Adventure Tour if you are in search le thrills and great discovery, it's abordable $49.99 for the entire tour with the guide where you'll have to climb on the rocks, go through suspended bridges and come back to the start on a raft. The bus if taking you back to the entrance of the park. :) sorry for my english by the way !!

Total tourist trap, super cheesy signs leading into this place and all around--also, it is not free. There is a viewing spot off the bridge that you can walk out on that lets you see some of the sight, but it's very limited. To get on any trails or see anything really interesting you have to pay and admission fee (per person!)

Came here as a teenager and it was amazing, beautiful hike with so much nature and history to enjoy. If you like seeing the natural wonders of the U.S. this should be a stop you make.
