  • We chose High Falls Gorge to visit to see the waterfalls of the Ausable River rather than the bigger Ausable River Falls, because of the proximity to our hotel in Lake Placid, and we have a small dog ...  more »
  • It was a November day and the snow was falling, got some great photos. If you have some time and a nice clear day stop by. Large gift shop as well. 
  • You can spend a good hour walking the walkways around this gorge. It was beautiful. We were there on a cloudy day and it was impressive. We can only imagine what it would have been like on a sunny day...  more »

  • This is a gorgeous and well kept piece of property. The owners have done a wonderful job keeping the trails, steps and walkways in excellent condition. There are very informative signs along the way with excellent views of the falls and gorge. We were so pleased that we stopped. Highly recommended.
  • I see people whining about the price...$11 bucks a person was well worth the price. Yes, it is only a 1/2 mile round trip hike/walk to view the multiple tiers of this falls, but that money goes to the upkeep of these wonderfully maintained paths and bridges. We drove from Lake George (90 mins away) for something to do, and we were not disappointed. Hearing the roar of the water as it passes under you, was the best. I will definitely return in the early spring to view, when it is all ice or melting snows bring the deafening sounds.
  • Stopped on a whim. So glad we did. Friendly and skilled server. Great sandwich on sunflower bread, with a hearty onion soup on the side. Fabulous views of ADK fall colors and a great little walk trail along the river. Take the time to stop here!
  • What a great walk we had today at the High Falls Gorge. I have a recently fractured foot and I was able to tour the Gorge. The walkways are very accessible and safe. We were impressed with the maintenance and beauty of the new fencing. We stopped several times to enjoy the view utilizing the adirondack chairs and benches. Staff was friendly. We did not eat at the little restaurant. Cute gift shop.
  • Very nice staff And nice view Worth the walk and stop
