Ausable Chasm, a popular summer destination since 1870, is now offering spectacular winter tours. If scenery and tranquility are your passions, you have come to the right place. Avoid the summer crowds: you could possibly have the entire park to yourself!
View gigantic icicles that tower 150' above the Ausable River and a chasm blanketed in snow (as conditions allow). Descend into the depths of the chasm to explore the rock and ice formations along the popular Inner Sanctum Trail (only available with guided tour). Two-hour guided winter tours are available when winter conditions allow, and reservations are required.
All visitors must wear snowshoes or ice cleats for safety, depending on how much ice and snow has accumulated. Rentals are available for per day if you do not have your own.
When conditions allow, self-guided admissions are allowed along the Rim Trail only. To guarantee chasm entry for your visit we highly recommend reserving one of our guided tours today!
Due to the nuture of winter hiking and equipment required, self-guided tours are limited to children age 8 and up, and guided tours are limited to children age 10 and up.
