Enjoy the self-guided tour at your pace while you take in some of the amazing sights the Adirondacks offer.

There is a fee to visit this amazing area. It ranges from $8.25 to $29.50 depending on your age/season/package.

The Gorge offers approximately 1.75 miles of trails with breathtaking views to be had. The red trail is 1/4 mile and is wheelchair/stroller accessible. The yellow trail is 1/2 mile with a mix of bridges, walkways and groomed paths. The brown trail is a 1 mile hiking trail (great for snowshoeing in winter).

The west branch of the AuSable River flows through granite cliffs formed over a billion years ago. The waterfalls and potholes are amazing. There is also an area with a glass platform so you can see the water rushing beneath your feet.

I did this with a couple of my friends when we went up to Lake Placid and I really did enjoy myself. The nature walk was exactly as described, a walk, but it was fun. The waterfalls were beautiful and I loved that we were walking along the cliff side. Definitely glad we did this!

This hike is a lot of fun. The bridges suspended above the river and right by the falls is very cool. be sure to walk out to some of the overlook points and look down as they have put glass floors to see the river flowing below you.

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!
