  • Wonderful walk by the Ausable River. The paths are well marked and easily walkable with stunning views on rapids and stone walls. Unfortunately the best viewing platform was closed due to repairs...
  • One of the prettiest places to visit. Five miles of trails, all maintained well, ranging from accessible easy trails to rough dry riverbeds to adventure trails involving rope bridges. Beautiful views. You can even go tubing down part of the chasm! In recent years this private park has undergone some serious improvements, which I was very happy to see. Park buildings were refinished, more of the railings were replaced, safety was increased along many trails, and in general it's a much happier place to visit. Worth the drive!
  • We did both the ropes course and the float and we had a blast! I recommend the tubes if the weather allows as it was nice to float at your own pace. The staff were all very nice and it was a great time. My only wish is there were more opportunities to get water on the trail. We tried to bring very little with us at the lockers were up at the visitor center but we were disappointed there was no where to get water after the ropes course. On a hot day remember to bring your own hydration.
  • A must see! Great easy walking trails. We had a senior and a baby on a carrier. Although lots of stairs to go up to, it doesn't seem so bad because of the beautiful scenery.
  • Super pretty hike with some rough terrain. There's no wall scaling even on the difficult tracks. Most hikers with a stout walking stick should have an enjoyable few hours. Don't expect a wilderness trek though. There's an adventure park feel to it, between the rafters and the guided tours. It's a good place for families with kids.
