While we were staying at Loon Mountain in Lincoln, New Hampshire a few weekends ago, one of the things we did was take a gondola ride up to the summit. We’ve stayed at Loon numerous times over the years, but it wasn’t until we got a Super Adventure Pass for their Adventure Center that we actually went to the top of the mountain.
There are a few things to do up on the summit of the mountain, including the Glacial Caves. There you can crawl, squeeze and climb your way through the really old caves & boulders that date back to the ice age. Seriously.
More than 12,000 years ago, the massive Laurentide Ice Sheet covered Loon Mountain in more than a mile of ice. When the ice melted, it left behind a whole bunch of ginormous boulders just below the summit. Now-a-days you can explore the small caverns and passageways tucked into the that area because they’ve built a wooden walkway throughout it.
