Nestled in the wooded mountains of Hardy County, Lost River State Park encompasses 3,712 acres. A vast array of recreational facilities create a vacation getaway perfect for families. Enjoy an invigorating hike to "Cranny Crow" with its commanding views of the surrounding ridges, stroll around park headquarters or enjoy a book on a park bench under the massive branches of an ancient pine. All of this creates an atmosphere of peacefulness and serenity for visitors to Lost River State Park.

Lost River certainly is a perfect choice if you like hiking and enjoy nature. Several miles of hiking trails lead to hours of exercise and an unparalleled opportunity for nature study given the abundance of flora and fauna found in the park. One rewarding trail leads to Cranny Crow overlook with its commanding views of the park from 3,200 feet.

To assist you with your discovery of the natural wonders of the park is a seasonal summer naturalist. This person also organizes such popular activities as hikes, stream searches, films, slide shows, cookouts, campfires and family fun athletic competitions. The naturalist activities are available Memorial Day through Labor Day.
