This is a beautiful cave and walking towards the cave you will see many species of plants. The ride in the boats through the cave was a little disappointing. It only lasted about 10 minutes. The history of the cave was fascinating.

Great walking trails and hikes for us locals. Nice way to get out and spend an afternoon. They do allow you to bring your pets on the walking trails too. A stroller can be used on the paved trail.

Lost River Cave is a quick tour of the grounds and cave with interesting history. Tour guide Roma did an amazing job keeping interest and telling stories. The boat tour was interesting. You can also kayak.

Paulette, the boat ride would be difficult but by all means give them a call....super nice folks. There are some paved trails around the cave, and a cool bridge that would be very accessible but make sure your brakes are in... More

Hi, It is a little bit of a rough terrain (with a slight slope and dirt) after you get off the bridge to the mouth of the cave, but it can be done. Once you get to the entrance of the cave, I think there is a wheelchair... More
