Lake Champlain Byway
US Hwy 9 south of Plattsburg, NY takes you past Ausable Chasm. There's a highway overlook, or you can pay the entrance fee and enjoy hiking, rafting, and more.
"Ausable Chasm is a sandstone gorge tourist attraction near Keeseville, New York.
The Ausable River runs through it, which then empties into Lake Champlain.
The gorge is about two miles long, and is a minor tourist attraction in the Adirondacks region of Upstate New York. It is fed by the Rainbow Falls at its southern extreme." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ausable_Chasm
US Hwy 7 runs south from Burlington 135 miles through Vermont, then across western Massachusetts and western Connecticut. See our western Massachusetts and Connecticut page.
Across the river from the Connecticut Scenic Byway, the American Precision Museum, Open May 26 – October 31, 10am – 5pm daily, is said to hold the largest collection of historically significant machine tools in the nation.
