The Lost Canyon Cave and Nature Trail was the highlight of my Missouri trip! We paid the 10 dollar entrance fee and drove up to the Top of The Rock. You get the ten dollars back to either put towards food, amusements or the cost of the tour tickets (which we did.) We checked in and signed some waivers and paid the 25 dollar fee per person for the golf cart self-guided tour. There is a multitude of man-made and natural formations to observe and explore.
I spent the day exploring the beautiful Lost Canyon Cave and Nature Trail!
We started off and saw waterfalls and rock formations, and then made our way to the four-story cave. The cave was so beautiful with a waterfall overhead, and when we came around the bend I saw the Bat Bar. The cave tour was a great experience and definitely a lot of fun. The views inside the cave were spectacular!
We continued our way and stopped off many times to take in the gorgeous views from up at the top. You can see many beautiful cascading waterfalls, stacked table rock formations, and wildlife. Top of The Rock sits high atop a bluff and you can see Ozark’s and Table Rock Lake. This place is a photographers dream. Everything we witnessed was so mesmerizing.
I love the unexpected discovery of being completely enchanted with the discovery of a new place. At Top of the Rock you will take in the scenic vistas of Ozark’s. The cave offers mystery and intrigue to curious minds. The gorges and canyons are bold and daring. The mountain views, rolling hills and towering waterfalls are awe-inspiring.
The Lost Canyon affords visitors with unparalleled views of the Ozark mountains and Table Rock Lake. I am eternally grateful for getting to witness the beauty and greatness of The Lost Canyon!
And my bucket list dreams just keep coming true!
