Long before recorded history, massive glaciers slowly ground their way across North America, shaping the land. The powerful forces of water, wind, weather and time worked their magic, creating Lost River. Today you can follow Lost River as it appears and disappears through the narrow steep-walled gorge, the tumbled granite crevasses, caverns and falls. Along the boardwalks and in the boulder caves you'll travel through history, journeying back 25,000 years to the time of glaciers and pagan gods. Wander through caves, squeeze through boulders into spaces between rocks and climb over and under the glacially made wonders of Lost Gorge.
