Ausable River

ausable river

Middlesex County ON


The Ausable River flows through much of Northwest Middlesex and is one of the most biologically diverse rivers in Canada. The river runs through a forested corridor with Carolinian species such as Black Maple, Eastern Flowering Dogwood, Chinquapin Oak, and Sycamore follows the winding valley for about 15 km.

The Ausable River has carved a dramatic and steep-sided gorge and valley near the village of Hungry Hallow, but due to its ruggedness and inaccessibility, the 19-km gorge and its picturesque waterfalls, is one of the largest river valleys remaining in a natural condition in the region.

There are sections of the Ausable River that are easy to access, allowing visitors a place to fish, canoe or hike along.
