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.

What a nice attraction. The power of nature is evident here. My wife and I hiked all trails, regretfully we skipped the raft trip. Next time we will. The trails are well maintained and the descriptive plaques were helpful. Great destination.

Excellent Time. I was extremely nervous but had a smile on my face the whole time. Easy course but nerve wracking with single wire bridges and heights. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and helpful through the course.

Are any of the trails, or parts of them, leading up at least enough to see the chasm, wide enough for a small stroller?

You can hike it but it would be hard to do with a stroller.
