New trails!  New vistas!  More spectacular scenery!

back

Ausable Chasm, a popular summer destination since 1870, is now offering spectacular winter tours.  Avoid the large crowds of summer and literally have the entire park to yourself. 

Choose the 30-minute winter waterfall walk to casually view the nearly frozen Rainbow Falls and the famous Elephant's Head. Or, purchase a full-admission ticket to gain access to the chasm Rim Walk Trail and marvel at 150 foot icicles and unique rock formations blanketed in snow.

Guests who would like to descend into the chasm on our famous Inner Sanctum Trail must go with a guide.  One or two hour guided adventure are available and reservations are required (see below).

For safety, all trails and walks require the use of snowshoes or ice cleats, depending on accumulated ice and snow. Rentals are available for $10/day if you do not have your own.  There is no rental fee for the winter waterfall walk.
