High Falls Gorge

Here, under the shadow of Whiteface Mountain, you can capture sight of the west branch of the famous Au Sable River as it explodes into deep crevices in its 700 foot journey through ancient granite cliffs formed over a billion years ago by the forces of ice, water and wind.

Modern bridges and groomed paths allow you to enjoy a self-guided tour to view the beautiful waterfalls, dark pools, and one of New York's largest pot holes. A complimentary map informs you about the ancient rock, climax forest, and history of the river. To round out your visit, be sure to visit our large Adirondack gift shop as well.
