This was amazing and incredibly maintained. The place has done a fantastic job at making this place accessible to many, labels for the safe areas to go, and ensure that visitors are safe in playing within the rocks.

I am a schoolteacher who has taken classes to Lost River a few times. The place is beautiful and educational, let me be clear about that. What is frustrating is trying to get hold of people at the facility to make plans ahead of time....More

Due to flooding, a few caves were closed when we went. However, we still enjoyed ourselves and had an enjoyable time walking on the boardwalk throughout the caves and waterway. Some caves would be a bit too difficult for a tall/big person to navigate, but...More

No you do not have to explore the caves. There is a wooden platform that follows the trail. The loop is approximately 0.6 miles long. We spent about 2 hours exploring the trail. Wear comfortable shoes/sneakers.
