My husband and I really enjoyed the Lost Valley hiking trail. The water was barely flowing in July. About halfway down the trail, there is a small waterfall, pool and walk through cave. You do not need to get in the water but I did and I slipped in the water on the algae, bruised my elbow and got a wet butt. That did not stop me from completing the hike. At the end of the trail there was cave. We took flashlights to see in the cave. We did not go all of the way back in the cave because we had to crawl, it was muddy and very dark. The temporary was cool and refreshing for a July afternoon. I was told the cave was 500 feet deep. Three teenagers in another family crawled all the way back. They said there was a trickle of a waterfall (Eden Falls) in the cave but it was hard to see with just flashlights. The teenage girl came out with a bloody leg. The hike back to the cave is fairly easy and the scenery is pretty. We saw all ages of people on the trail. There are picnic tables at the trail head. We enjoyed a picnic lunch there. By sure to visit Boxley Valley in the evening to see lots of elk. Steel Creek campground (in the same area) has a great swimming hole.
