• Polar Caves Park - Rumney, New Hampshire

      Exploring glacial caves formed of granite during the Ice Age is the main attraction at Polar Caves Park. Wriggle through Lemon Squeeze if you are tiny enough and agile! Crawl through Fat Man's Misery or walk the Devil's Turnpike! Less agile folks can always choose the bypasses for any cave and meet their party at the other end and still see the tremendous views at the top. The adventuresome can also climb the glacial wall or ascend the Iron Way and then rappel back down. Youngsters will enjoy feeding the ducks and fallow deer in the Animal Park. Explore the nature trails and try your hand at sluicing for gems. There's plenty to keep the whole family busy!
