Follow the boardwalk up and down stairs and ladders on many levels. Cross the bridges and climb (occasionally crawl) into the caves. So many gorgeous views at multiple elevations make this a photography lover's dream. The mountain setting and the beautiful river nestled in the gorge among the massive boulders makes this a nature lover's dream. Great way to get... More

At first glance, this may seem like a great activity for all ages...it's not. Make sure everyone in your party understands how tight these caves get and can EASILY pass through the test caves before entering the cave proper. With that out of the way, easily one of the weirdest, but invigorating things to do north of the notch. It... More

The trails were fairly easy and clear. The views were spectacular. Stairs next to the gorge needed a bit of attending to as they were wet and somewhat slippery, but not dangerous at all. This is an easy hike for most people, even those not in the best shape. The waterfall is longer than deep, but where the gorge comes... More

I possibly didn't appreciate from other reviews that to fully enjoy this experience, you need to be over 12 (so as to not have to find an adult to accompany you into the caves), preferably under about 5'2" and a size zero. I am 5'4" and bordering on "plus size" so couldn't even attempt to enter some of the caves... More

The gorge is really nice bit to crawl thru the caves is so funny. The caves are really small an you often have the feeling you can't pass thru the openings. But my bf has 100kg and he could make them.

I needed something to do to waste time waiting to check into my hotel. I googled places to 'adventure' that were outdoors. The Lost River Boulder Gorge caught my interest when i was travelling through on the Kangamangus highway this summer. I decided to check it out. I travelled on a colder/rain/fog day and went alone. This place was really... More

The Lost River Gorge is worth seeing. It seemed a bit pricey in light of all the amazing hikes and opportunities that are free in the White Mountains. But our family still enjoyed walking through the gorge, squeezing through the caves, and seeing the kids have fun. The only disappointment was the disinterested staff. They seemed much more interested in... More

This is a neat place to walk at any time of year. If I go again, I will plan it when there's been a lot of rain, so the water is full and flowing.
