Not exactly the Grand Canyon, but it is a great way to spend a day in Upstate NY. It's an easy drive up the Northway (I87) and the directions to the chasm are well marked. We took my 10 year old grand daughter from Brooklyn...More

Awesome slow float tour and tubing for family and young kids. Would return when kids are older to do the adventure trail. Kids ages were 7-12 and they loved it

We did not visit the canyon park, but we stopped near the bridge and looked over at the canyon and the falls. It is a beautiful area and worth a quick stop if you don't have time to visit the park.

We came from Saranac Lake (an hour drive) to go here. It was a beautiful drive. We did the classic tour (kids 3, 6, 8, 9). The walk had several stairs, but not difficult. Great view. The raft float is about 15 minutes long with...More

We decided to do the "Inner Sanctum" trail and the raft ride. A lot of ups and down and a lot of stairs. I would recommend viewing the different offerings before paying and making a choice. The "adventure trail" is not for neophytes or those...More

We did the adventure trail and it took about 2 hours for our group to finish. Beware, it's pretty high, so if you're afraid of heights it may not be the best thing. You're on wobbly cables and slats above the river for parts of...More

You’re free to go on the trails your own, at your own pace. The signs help you and there are nice lookouts.

The only one you do with a group is the adventure trail. The other ones are on your own, at your pace.
