“More to Explore in Keeseville!”

Step back in time as you walk our nature trails in the midst of a primeval Adirondack Forest. Stroll past Rainbow Falls, Elephant's Head, Column Rock, Hyde's Cave and the eerie quiet of Mystic Gorge. Descend hundreds of feet to walk on natural stone walkways and gaze upon eons of geologic history etched in stone. Ausable Chasm is a sandstone gorge tourist attraction near Keeseville, New York. The Ausable River runs through it, which then empties into Lake Champlain. The gorge is about two miles long, and is a minor tourist attraction in the Adirondacks region of Upstate New York. It is called by some, the "Grand Canyon of the East", and is fed by the Rainbow Falls, at its southern extreme. The chasm has a continuous exposure of a section of the Potsdam Sandstone more than 160 metres (520 ft) thick, which includes, in an unpublished location, a rare, mid-Cambrian jellyfish fossil.
