The Lost River Gorge, located in the White Mountains town of North Woodstock is an adventure that combines the beauty of nature with the excitement of exploring! Since 1853, thousands of guests of all ages have marveled at its the beauty, mystery, and tranquility. The steep walled gorges and rugged boulder caves are still lit by lanterns and guided by boardwalks. For those of adventurous spirit, there are many caves to explore.

The river keeps you company along the ¾ mile journey. Even when it’s not visible, the river is never far away—you can hear it babbling over the rocks, just out of sight. Lost River is so-named because the brook draining from the south east part of Kinsman Notch disappears below the surface in the narrow, steep-walled glacial Gorge. The Gorge is partially filled with immense blocks of granite, through which the brook cascades along its subterranean course until it eventually emerges and joins the Pemigewasset River which flows south from Franconia Notch.
