There's a mile long boardwalk (1,000 stairs to climb) that goes through the gorge as it winds its way along the Lost River past huge boulders, glacial boulder caves and cascading waterfalls. There is also a 60 foot suspension bridge that spans the upper gorge....More

Lost River Gorge delivers. Scrambling through the caves and along the boardwalk is a blast for all ages. The waterfalls are amazing. The gorge is incredible. Be sure to try the Lemon Squeezer. Making it through feels like an accomplishment.

Squeeze into caves and take in the beauty of this natural wonder. We brought our children at ages 8 & 10 and again at 11 & 13 with my parents (70+). The trail takes at least an hour and can be exhausting but totally worth...More

We hiked up the Lost River Gorge in the Fall. It was an amazing collection of water falls, clusters of bright orange and yellow leaves, glacial boulders and tall forest. A bit of a workout, especially taking the complete trail. Worth every step

This is a fun little place especially if you have kids, they'd love it! There are so many different caves for them to go into. But it is a little expensive, $20/adult, not sure if kids get a cheaper ticket.

Enjoyed hiking to the Lost River Gorge when we were visiting New Hampshire. Beautiful place and would have liked to see the autumn leaves changed to their colors but we were a little early.
