Visit New Hampshire: Lost River Gorge & Boulder Caves

On our last day in New Hampshire, we had plans to go to a nearby amusement park, but because of stormy weather, it closed down for the day.

So what do we do instead?  We drive 2+ hours to the White Mountain Region to hike and crawl in rainy, 40-degree weather at Lost River Gorge & Boulder Caves.

Lost River Gorge & Boulder Caves allows visitors to explore the area's waterfalls and caves.  A 3/4 boardwalk (with lots of stairs) makes it fairly easy to traverse from one end to the other, but because it was pouring rain (thank goodness for the towering trees which shielded us from a lot of the raindrops), the boardwalk was very slippery, so we took our time.

There are numerous boulder formations which allow you to crawl (some you have to literally crawl on your hands and knees) through, or ones where you can try and squeeze through tiny crevices.

The caves can be quite tight - they are not for the faint of heart, or those who tend to be claustrophobic.

Two of my kids were game for trying out the tricky obstacles.  My youngest just wanted to stay on the boardwalk - which was fine with me, because I kept him company!

The scenery throughout the hike was just beautiful.

Because of the pouring rain, the Lost River was gushing, and Paradise Falls was a beauty!

Near the end of the trail is a covered bridge and a fun tree house.

Even though it was pouring rain and freezing while we were there, it made for a very memorable experience at Lost River Gorge & Boulder Caves!
