We visited about 10 years ago and remember this place very fondly. Our kids (pretty little at the time) enjoyed it very much.

Visited this attraction with the grandkids a few years ago, and we all had fun clambering through the subterranean rocks and "lemon squeezers". Not a place for a stout person, or one who lacks the flexibility to negotiate a few tricky passages. Very young children should be accompanied, but kids who are adventurous should have a great time.

In mid October during leave season we visited the Lost River with 2 grandchildren (ages 6 & 9) and had a great time. Go early to avoid larger crowds and expect to spend time in each area - don't just rush thru. If older or less nimble you can avoid certain tight areas as bypasses are available. Walkways are well...

We are in the 70-s and enjoyed the approximately 2 kms walk, mostly boardwalkng. We enjoyed it, but should be even more interesting for our granchildren who would love entering all the caves. We only went into one of them. We were there shortly after they opened so we were almost alone along the route.

Very nice to visit in a nice day. Lot of stairs so take good shoes. You can go under and between huge boulders, there are not real caves. Kids can crowl in the "caves", adults will enjoy landscapes.

It is a nice trail where it takes you to a beautiful gorge and fun caves, good for healthy adults and children.
