Lost River Gorge - White Mountains, NH - Badger Peabody & Smith RealtyHidden away amid the gorgeous White Mountains, you'll find the Lost River Gorge & Boulder Caves, which certainly rank among the most amazing natural attractions near Woodstock homes for sale. Shaped by natural processes, this attraction provides a window into the past and a beautiful place to explore in the present. Our real estate agents have the inside scoop on what to expect when visiting Lost River Gorge & Boulder Caves.

  • The History of Lost River Gorge
    The modern history of Lost River Gorge began in 1852 when a pair of brothers, Royal and Lyman Jackman, discovered it accidentally during a fishing trip. One brother fell into a hole and landed in one of the Boulder Caves, which led the brothers to explore many of the other caves in the area. The geological history of Lost River Gorge, however, stretches back more than 300 million years, when glaciers reshaped the land during an ice age. Eventually, those glaciers melted, and over time the rushing waters further reshaped Lost River Gorge into the amazing natural spectacle that visitors enjoy to this day.

  • Explore the Boardwalk Trail and Climb the Giant Bird Nest
    Start your journey above ground with a walk on the one-mile-long boardwalk trail that runs along the path of the Lost River, providing excellent views of Lost River Gorge and the surrounding scenery. Then try a climb up the Giant Bird Nest, where you can enjoy unmatched views from above. As you explore Lost River Gorge, you'll also discover a long suspension bridge with even more great views and a unique treehouse that kids are sure to love.

  • Descend into 11 Spectacular Boulder Caves
    The adventure continues below ground, where brave explorers will discover the Boulder Caves, just like the Jackman Brothers did nearly two centuries ago. There are 11 caves to explore in total, with each one having its own unique characteristics. Along the way, you'll discover posted signs with interesting information about each location.

  • Family Fun at the Lost River Mining Sluice
    With its Young Explorers program and fun, educational nature, Lost River Gorge is a great place for a family outing. The Lost River Mining Sluice is the cherry on top, allowing visitors of all ages to pan for gemstones and fossils in the Lost River. For the youngest visitors, the excitement of the Lost River Mining Sluice is often the highlight of the trip.

  • Gain a New Perspective with a Guided Lantern Tour
    Feeling adventurous? The guides at the Lost River Gorge also offer guided Lantern Tours on select nights, allowing you to experience the natural beauty of the area from a whole new perspective. Each lantern tour includes direction from an expert guide, who will take you along the boardwalk and down into the Boulder Caves.

  • Tips for Making the Most of Your Trip to Lost River Gorge & Boulder Caves
    The Lost River Gorge & Boulder Caves are open to visitors every week from Thursday through Monday, and it's strongly recommended to reserve your spot ahead of time online.
