Named for the Lost River Gorge in Kinsman Notch and the boulders that have covered the river at the end of the last Ice Age, Lost River Gorge and Boulder Caves allows groups to explore the wonders of our natural environment. Climb, crawl, and squeeze through eleven boulder caves, while learning about the geology of the gorge and how water played a role in its formation. Discover the flora, fauna, geology, and preservation of the caves on a guided tour. Groups may also navigate through the ecology trail or pan for treasure in the Lost River Mining Sluice.
