Ausable Chasm Reviews & Ratings
There's definitely more to do here than just take the easy hike and so we decided to get adventurous. We were attracted to this canyon by the Adventure Tour. We were expecting some cool views of the canyon from foot bridges, but were pleasantly surprised that it was a lot more of a fun challenge. It is very safe and very cool. You are clipped into a safety cable the whole time and are either scaling the canyon walls or crossing on cable bridges over the raging waters below. The first bridge is only a single cable so you start with a high wire act! After that, you can choose to do rafting or tubing along the lazy river. The wait for tubing and rafting was over 1 hour, but that was expected because of the busiest long weekend. And not to forget, had a great time on their rappelling adventure. Thanks to Tim, Joe, and Dan for a great time. I recommend the rappelling even if you are a little scared. The guys will get you through it and in no time you'll find yourself having a great time. We will surely be coming back for another round.
Loved it here! We took our youngest (9)hiking. Amazing cliffs. You take a map and have a choice of different trails, all great. It was definitely worth the 2 hrs drive.
Had a great visit on a rather rainy day. Still had some great views of this spectacular place. I was able to take the Adventure Tour (great job guiding Caleb) and felt very safe even though you are walking over cable bridges and traversing rock walls. It was still quite thrilling. We stayed in the campground and thoroughly enjoyed the attached mountain bike trails - fairy mellow, nice flow. We will be back!!!
This place was amazing. It’s a little pricey to walk around but in my opinion it was worth it. The raft riding tour through the chasm ravine was spectacular and the sites are awe inspiring. It’s a hike to get here, but if you’re up for an adventure that’s safe for kids and adults alike then you’ll love this place!
Awesome views. Hiking trails for everyone from easy to hard. 2 shuttle bus stops to bring you back to the Welcome center. Cafe available with food which was reasonable & delicious. Good selection of high quality souvenirs. The easy trail still provides great views.
