Really Beautiful

Took my kids ages 9-15 they enjoyed it very much. There is quite a bit of walking so wear your comfortable shoes/sneakers. There is also a really nice gift shop.

Lost River Gorge is our family's absolute favorite attraction in the area. This was our third visit to the Gorge and we had a great time as always. The hike is beautiful and the caves are a lot of fun both for adults and kids. One big negative is the admission price ($19 for adults and $15 for kids). As... More

The key is to do it in the right weather, I would say sunny 70-75F is the perfect one. The path is easy, don't afraid from "1000 steps". Kids really enjoy entering caves.

I love river gorges and caves, so Lost River was a no brainer for me. Despite the fact I had a knee replacement 5 weeks ago I loved it and all of their 1,000 steps. I couldn't do all of the caves, but found the walkways very safe for me. I can't wait to come back and do all the... More

We spent about 2 hours here with our 2 teenage boys. We all loved it! We were warned there were 1000 steps beforehand but the paths & the steps up & down were in short lengths it didn't feel that many at all. The walkways were very well maintained - a lot of effort must have been made to construct... More

We decided to take in this attraction, since we have never visited many caves before. Even though there were many nice views and interesting rock formations, it was really difficult in places for older folks like us. This was not really explained very well prior to the ticket purchase, which was not cheap. Things would have been much better if... More

I love this place. Came in 2015 and had to come back this year and will be back next year. I loved the new outlook deck that has a great view of the mountains. It's a little pricey but worth it.

Lost River is a fun exploration adventure. We spent on her than the typical 1.5 hours, but the kids went back through some of the caves a couple of times. It's gorgeous and peaceful.
