Lost Valley Hiking Trail

It is nice that there is concrete walkway at the beginning and people in wheelchair can also enjoy. We did the whole length of the trail and it's beautiful, but it should had been more beautiful if there is more water in the waterfalls. Maybe better to go in Spring or early Summer that in the Fall.

This is a great location for a day trip... plenty of parking... bathrooms... a pavilion... well maintained trail to a natural bridge. The trail to the natural bridge is wheelchair accessible and has many benches along the way. The trail to the cave and waterfalls are not so maintained.
Besides the cost of gas and picnic supplies...this is a free day trip for the whole family. Enjoy the beautiful scenery on the drive in... if you are lucky, maybe you will see some elk (we saw 5 on our trip).

What a wonderful hike this was. My wife and I enjoyed hiking up to the falls. Easy walking most of the way. The closer you got to the falls it was a little harder. Was definitely worth the hike. There is even a water fall in the cave.

This trail is almost 3.5 miles return but takes a long time because even though half of the way is well paved, the rest for going to the falls and the cave is not paved at all and requires going on broken stairs and dirt. Even though it was raining when we went (may end), it was still beautiful. The falls are a good sight and based on pictures, it seems fall is the best time to visit. The stairs leading to cave are a bit difficult to walk on but worth it. When you reach the cave - make sure to go in. It is another 50 yards and quite dark so you should take a torch or something.
