Like walking through Jurasic Park. Nice variation in hike. Caves were interesting and not too long to go through.

We had a family weekend in NH - This place is beautiful and awesome! Make sure you have comfy walking shoes and are prepared to crawl in some of the caves. Worth it though. Beautiful caves etc ( our favorite was the one with waterfall inside the cave). Definitely bring water on the hike. My 4 year old tackled it... More

Worth the $18 each, be prepared though, one of the free hikes is tough, nearly vertical and very rocky ( it does pay to read the signs well) The paid self guided walking tour is excellent, care in some of the caves rated 3 as if you are a little large you cannot get through. Wear something that you don't... More

This place has everything you want. We went just a couple no kids on this trip. We felt like kids. The rock formations and caves are wonderful. The trails are well maintained and everything is well organized. If you have kids take them here. You can go in caves. Some will get you dirty though so make plans for that.... More

Our 5 year old loved crawling through the caves and walking the boardwalks. Some of the spaces can be a bit tight and you will get dirty but its fun. If you can do it at a leisurely pace, instead of a 5 year olds pace, its even better. It is a bit overpriced but it is a nice, well... More

I have been going there since I was a child. It is a great time for all ages and so beautiful. The price is good and it is very educational. They have added some areas and are still building more. Highly recommend it.

Lost river is beautiful, caves are very fun! Think we probably did this in 2 hours with snack stops, it's probably not worth 18$. Very commercial, did these same types of things in hikes on my own at Franconia state park. Probably better for elderly or small children. That said, very clean, very beautiful, woodwork is very good! Tried to... More

Started our second vacation day here after doing the Polar Caves on day 1. Awesome scenery!!! A walk into the woods then 300 feet into the Gorge to the caves. Waterfalls, caves and climbing gave great pic opportunities. Very affordable minus a coupon for a free child admission.

** My one piece of advice after visiting a couple times- leave your bag or backpack in the car. You can't get through some caves with it on, so you'll either be leaving it on the path or trying to push it through the cave in front of you.** I have to admit it's getting a little expensive, but it's...
