We went to the Lost River with our kids and they had a blast climbing into and out of the various caves. We went there on a hot day, but as you climb down into the rocks, it's wasn't that hot. They provide alternatives for people who can't go into the caves (for whatever reason) and they added an expanded... More

We had a great time at Lost River Gorge with our nine year old. He was so excited throughout the walk. He loved climbing through the caves. He did most of them without us. My husband has a bad shoulder and I have neck issues. Although we both were able to do some of them. It is a workout as... More

Family loved exploring the caves and the trail. Even in the rain it was fun. Love the new additions seems like they really keep up on the place we had a great time and were happy to have made it a stop during our trip to the White Mountains.

Looking for a family event that would be fun for all ages, this was the place. From 4 yrs old to 60 yrs old...we had the best time. Smiles all the way through this beautiful gorge with caves, rock formations, and caves. Plenty of seating for breaks along with challenging caves to explore. Everyone had a wonderful and memorable time.... More

Our kids really enjoyed exploring the small caves and paths along the lost river. Lots of steps and some tight squeezes so don't say we didn't warn you but it is so worth it! Beautiful sites and rock formations, make sure you look at how the trees grow around the rocks and how the water has carved through the rock,... More

I've been here twice. Once when I was about five and then again with my kids. As an adult I didn't realize we would be literally crawling on our stomachs through some sections, but if you just go with it, it's a lot of fun. Where else do you get to do this without being an official spelunker? There are... More

I've been to other gorges and caves. Though this is very pretty, it's deceiving with the "caves" part of the name. There aren't any caves or caverns to go into - unless you are super tiny, want to get slimy and dirty and don't mind being wedged into places that you have to slide back out of. I also went... More

Even though this attraction seems a little pricey... it is SO worth it. Our kids ages 7, 11, and 15 absolutely LOVED going through the caves. After a three week vacation through New England, the Lost River & Caves was one of our kid's favorite adventures. Worth the stop!

Truly a great adventure for a couple of hours. Walk the boardwalk all the way through the woods and when you get to the river start exploring the caves. Most of them you can crawl through, some are more harder to get through. Dark, wet and fun!! Even for us adults - LOL. New this year: tree house and suspension... More
