Get up close and personal with the river on our Riverwalk tour at Ausable Chasm. Start by descending all the way down inside of the chasm where you can admire the best view of rainbow falls! Following that, your guide will walk you along at river level with the chasm walls towering 150 feet above you, while telling stories about the chasm and explaining the unique geological formations that were carved out from the melting glaciers following the last ice age. Your guide will then take you up a flight of stairs where you will be 50 feet above the river on a wide cliff. The tour ends with 2 cable bridges from the adventure trail that are over 100 feet long and 50 feet above class 3 and 4 rapids! The cable bridge has a wide wooden plank down the middle and cargo netting on the side, so it does not require a harness. The Riverwalk takes about 30-45 minutes and is available for everyone ages 5 and up. Helmets are required and provided, and must fit securely and properly. Closed toed shoes are required.
If you arrive early, tours may be private and you will not have any other guests with your group. This may change during peak hours, in which case groups may be combined. If time allows, we may be able to provide a private tour. If groups are combined, we will ask groups to remain socially distant from each other.
The Riverwalk tours are very popular during the summer. We advise you to come early to avoid a possible wait for the Riverwalk portion of your visit. Reservations are not accepted for the Riverwalk so you might wait 30 minutes or more between 12pm and 2pm. We think the experience is worth the wait, but if you don't have ample time, please arrive early. We open at 9am, daily.
