“Wonderful time and views for all ages. The walkways get you close to the falls safely. You can spend as much time as you need taking family pictures or just birding. They have a restaurant and gift shop. Your kids can even mine for rocks inside. Plenty of parking and only 5 miles from Lake Placid heading towards Whiteface Mountain. At the base of Whiteface Mountain, the AuSable River flows through a breathtaking gorge and over four ancient waterfalls into a deep crevice carved by ice, water and wind. Naturally formed gorges that you can see from the groomed paths, steel bridges and walkways with glass floors. ”
