The Lost River Gorge is an extensive series of boardwalks through a gorge with many different caves you can explore. The caves are each clearly marked and described, and most feature ladders and flooring to make them easier to traverse. Some of the caves are particularly small and challenging and may not be appropriate for larger people. I was able... More

This was the first time in going to the Lost River Gorge. It was a very nice place to visit, a bit pricey, but still nice. Walking the trail you will go to the bottom of the gorge first, it is about 300 steps down in the gorge from what they say. Once at the bottom you start working your... More

The best way I can describe this place is the most complex series of boardwalks I've ever seen that allows you to descend down into a narrow rocky gorge to follow the Lost River through a series of boulder formations, caves and waterfalls. Over your 3/4 mile journey you descend 300 feet down into the gorge to experience it like... More

$18 a person. But this is worth it. Initially you are thinking it is a board walk similar to the Flume. Nope. This is a wonderland of boulders, caves, crawl spaces, and water. There is no time limit so enjoy and bring water with you. Also there is no bathroom and no way to go so keep that in mind.... More

I have lived in New Hampshire for 36 years and this was my first visit! I'm so glad that I finally went!! It was an amazing site to see! I think most everyone would be interested in seeing what Mother Nature can do and create.

The Lost River is a wonderful place for the family to visit while on vacation. The setting is absolutely beautiful. Navigating through the gorge is fun, especially for the kids. You have the option to avoid any small and narrow areas that you may not want to squeeze through!

Only 5 out of 11 or so caves were open because of the recent flooding. Even though we only squirmed our way in and around a few of the caves we had a great time and this is a great place for photographs. The walking is all up and down flights of stairs (many flights of stairs).

and even as we get over it, the grandkids love it, so it's well worth the stop. A very pleasant drive along the kangamangus highway and through a few quaint towns along the way
