The chasm is a gorgeous gash in the mountains. Absolutely worth the drive to experience. On the plus side of going in October - less crowded and spectacular fall foliage enhancing the views. On the downside, during the week there are no raft trips. I...More

It is worth the drive and time. Plenty of different activities for all ages. Simple walk of the chasm, adventure course, rock climbing, and wafting. Fantastic views everywhere you go. The rock formations are really neat to see. Check out their little museum inside the...More

Ausable Chasm is awesome. We were on both the yellow and green trails. The yellow is more challenging but well worth it. Not hard to do if you are ok with steps. The green trail could be marked better. Was so disappointed that the rafting...More

Hello, no reservations needed, just walk into the visitor center and make your choice whether yoy would like to tube down the river or raft down, or simply hike through the Chasm. You could also decide to do the ropes course
