Lost Canyon Nature Trail - Top of the Rock

About Lost Canyon Nature Trail - Top of the Rock
Experience an unforgettable two-and-a-half mile ride in an electric cart along the Top of the Rock Lost Canyon Nature Trail. Waterfalls, natural rock formations and covered Amish bridges dot the trek. From the welcome center, with the beauty of the trail as a guide, guests are steeped in adventure and history all the way to the breathtaking summit. The first place you'll stop as you meander along the nature trail is the awe-inspiring Top of the Rock Lost Canyon Cave. The centerpiece of the four-story cave are cascading waterfalls coupled with a cave bar serving up favorite beverages such as John L's Lemonade.

Itwas fun to drive the golfcarts through the windy, hilly trails, waterfalls, caves with waterfalls, bridges and all! Even though it was cold we stopped several times to look around. Even the use of artificial structures in some places was tasteful and did not detract....More

No you don't. You pay $10 to get into the reserve but they give you a $10 voucher that you can use to purchase tickets. They also give a military discount.
