Our family of six adults visited the Lost River Gorge and Boulder Caves on the last day of our week visit to the White Mountains. It was definitely the highlight of our vacation. The day was dark and drizzly which, to me, enhanced the experience by making it seem more eerie and scary (and less crowded). I was impressed with... More

Brought my 4 &5 year olds, we walked through, stopped for lunch, then did it again. I was surprised how small and dark the caves were. I am glad we didn't bring a backpack, just threw a water in our pocket. Most caves were easy to get around, they all have a boardwalk and stairs/ ladders, however, with the water... More

We went here because my 12 year old requested it. This attraction involves a lot of walking and a lot of stairs, but I am an out-of-shape 55 year old, so it can be done. My 2 kids did every cave, but I bypassed most of them, I still had a great time, enjoying the cool air and great environment.... More

It was so much fun exploring the mini caves. And the descent through the gorge is breathtaking! It's a very well run and well maintained attraction. Absolutely worth a visit!

My 7 year old summed it up with " this is the funniest time of my life!" Gorgeous views, really cool boulder caves to crawl through and a solid hike around on the sturdy boardwalks. We had two 3 year olds, a 6 year old and a 7 year old. I thought it was going to be too much for... More

We went to explore the List River Gorge with teens and a 10 year old and everyone had a great time! We weren't sure of exactly what to expect but are so glad we decided to go! Exciting, challenging (if you want, not challenging if you don't) and beautiful! Definitely recommend!

We had such a great time at the Lost River. We spend a good couple hours there and had a blast just crawling through the caves and taking pictures. There was a lot of walking involved but it was broken up by all the cave crawling. We went with a group with children and it was great for all ages.

Absolutely beautiful! Very clean and a wonderful hiking experience for not so avid hikers who like their road laid out for them. We went as a couple but can't wait to take our son next year! !

We had so much fun, and could really see the pride put into all the carpentry workmanship. Couldn't believe the access we had to all the awesome caves

This gorge is beautiful and the caves were fun. The cool air from the caves saves you from the humidity. It's amazing what the forces of nature can create.
