Polar Caves Park was the perfect finale for an incredible trip to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The park is situated a half hour drive from where we were staying in Lincoln right on the route home to New York.
We really enjoyed exploring the nine different granite caves created by the very interesting rock formations found at the park.
The entrance to the park leads visitors through a petting zoo area with deer, a gem mining area and then on to a genuine covered bridge and alongside a pond with ducks swimming around. The one-way wooden walkways are clearly marked to lead visitors from one cave to the next. The interesting names of the caves add to the fun atmosphere. With names like “The Keyhole”, “Party Poopers Lane” and “Fat Man’s Misery” you can’t help but see what awaits inside. It is hard to decide whether to go through the “Lemon Squeezer” or the “Orange Crush” Most of the caves have rock formations to climb over, under, or to squeeze between in order to get out. Many of the large rocks and rock formations have name plaques on them as well. There are benches along the way for anyone who wants to take it easy. For those more in shape, there are steps to go up leading to magnificent sweeping views of the area.
There is so much nature to enjoy at Polar Caves, it is recommended to count on spending two hours there.
