Beautiful. Lots of stairs but you can go as slowly as desired. Highly recommend. The cost-it is worth it. The engineering to allow you to walk through this gorge is impressive.

We had not been to Lost River for a number of years, but on a recent visit it was good to see that not much had changed, but some things had been added. The focus is walk through the gorge and going throught whichever of the "caves" you think you can manage. This remains a beautiful area and seeing the... More

Just returned from our visit to the Lost River, its a beautiful trek through the woods and there's various places to stop and enjoy the scenery, its about a 1 mile walk from start to finish and takes approx 1-2 hours, there are a lot of stairs and mosquito's, definitely use bug spray. Bring a camera !

We visited Lost River Gorge on our way to a weekend in the White Mountains and truly enjoyed it! It was extremely well maintained which makes it easy to get around. There is a really nice newer trail that takes you up to a gazebo that is tricked out with some cute animals. The gorge itself was really nice and... More

The lost river is ok... The grounds are well maintained and picturesque. Staff was very friendly. But the caves are a bit disappointing - most are very small and require crawling on your hands and knees. It was overpriced (18$ each) and not really for us.

We had a great time walking the paths and exploring the caves. We brought our 3 year old and 9 month old, and I was a little nervous how my 3 yr old would do with all the steps and the caves but it was just fine. She wasn't able to go in all the caves, but she was some... More

Really unique and fun experience walking down through a gorge and walking / crawling through boulder caves. Our kids, 4 and 6, loved it as well as the adults. Not too physically remanding to walk the gorge although the boulder caves do require some flexibility to get through. A couple of the caves were closed due to high water but... More

The Lost River Gorge was advertised as a thing to do or see in the White Mountain area of NH. With a groupon for discounted admission we went to walk the area for an afternoon. There was plenty of parking and a short walk to the visitor area, gift shop and the start of the boardwalk. Visitors could walk the... More

Stumbled upon the Boulder Caves during a motorbike ride through the White Mountains. It was much more impressive than expected and well worth the price of admission. While a mid 30 year old and 40 year old had a blast, this place is certainly fun for ALL ages.
