Overview

GET A GREAT VIEW WITHOUT THE HIKE. This privately owned 22 acre park is open for spring, summer, fall and winter seasons. Suddenly, you are worlds away, strolling through pristine forests and intimately close to four splendid waterfalls. Arrive curious, leave transformed by the forces of nature that created this spectacle. Half mile round trip walk to see the waterfalls takes 30-45 minutes. Wheelchair accessible in part. Adirondack style gift shop. River View Cafe with delicious light fare, beer and wines. Located just eight miles East of Lake Placid, High Falls Gorge is an affordable way to relax and refresh among some of the most stunning sights in the Adirondacks. To get correct answers to your questions about our facility please call us at our phone number listed. The forum on Trip Advisor will give out incorrect information.

We travelled here today to view the gorge and waterfalls. We found it to be very informative and absolutely beautiful, but overpriced. It costs $12USD to enter and do the self guided walk which took us roughly an hour. It's a very beautiful walk and...More

Beautiful and scenic water falls. Stroller and wheelchair accessible for most of the trail except the stairs that go down deeper in the falls. Plenty to see from all areas!

Thank you for reviewing High Falls Gorge. We are so glad you found the place relaxing and beautiful. It is unfortunate you felt the price was high. Our 11.95 per adult and 8.95 per child admission is inexpensive compared to the other privately owned attractions...More

Beautiful privately owned wooded acreage park alongside the water with multiplie stair sets and cross walks over the water to the other side. Spend as much time as you want. This is a fun nature walk unlike any other.

Although this trail is quite expensive, the prettiest part of the walk is early in the trip. However I wouldn’t advise this for a wheelchair unless motorized or you have a very strong pusher. Gravel trails mostly flat. Lovely waterfalls

This is a very interesting tourist place with excellent views of waterfalls. there is also a small cafe inside that has pretty good food, and the service is fine as well.

Took our families with young children and The path is easily navigable for young children. There are trails of varying degrees of difficulty however young 4-5-year-old children should have no problem. Nice views of small waterfalls.
