Lost River Cave
*Lost River Cave and its surrounding nature valley are temporarily closed to the public in response to the recommendations regarding the spread of COVID-19.
Throughout the valley, enjoy Treetop Bridge, nature trails, bird watching stations, picnic areas, and a favorite children's activity, the gemstone sluice. And as of April 2018, visitors can enjoy zipping across the valley and over one of the valley's blue holes on the Flying Squirrel Zipline! Younger visitors can get in on the action, too, with the Lightning Bug Zipline geared for ages 3 to 10.
Just looking to stretch your legs and enjoy some fresh air? Enjoy the valley's blue hole trails at no charge by simply checking in at the Visitor Center to let them know you're there. Well-behaved dogs are welcome in the valley.
Special tours including the Discovery Cave Crawl are available on a limited basis during the fall, winter and early spring when the river level is safe. All equipment including personal floatation device, helmets and headlamps is included. Additional children's activities and special events take place regularly throughout the summer. Contact the cave for more details.
Lost River Cave is available for corporate, civic, or social events after 6:30 pm each day. Walk along the river's edge, hold a ceremony or cocktail party on the bridge or at the Butterfly Habitat. The cave's ballroom (once the site of an underground nightclub!) is under roof, has a crystal chandelier and holds 300 seated guests with room for dancing. The new River Birch Meeting Room will hold approximately 50 people and is perfect for an annual meeting, social gathering or birthday party.
Hours: Open 7 days a week, 10am-4pm except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. Boat tours subject to recent rain amounts, please call ahead. Zipline closed mid-December to mid-March.
