Location of Rocky Gorge: Rt. 112 (Kancamagus Highway). Rocky Gorge Scenic Area and waterfall is located 5.7 mile East of Sabbaday Falls on the Kancamagus Highway and 2.3 miles West of Lower Falls

Details About Rocky Gorge: Rocky Gorge was formed by a mile high glacier at this location about 10,000 years ago. The Gorge was created by the melting of this glacier.

Today, Rocky Gorge is as beautiful as ever from the thousands of years of erosion through these rocks. Keep in mind that Rocky Gorge is just as dangerous as it is beautiful, which is the reason swimming is not allowed here. Many people have been injured or killed in the Swift River. One of the signs displayed at Rocky Gorge tells the story of Dorothy Sparks, who almost drowned at Rocky Gorge when she was trapped under the falls for 3 hours and 15 minutes on July 20, 1942. She was saved by a trooper who thought he was recovering Dorothy's body. The reprinted Readers' Digest article of Dorothy Sparks's near death experience is on display at Rocky Gorge along the scenic trail.

Weddings at Rocky Gorge: Rocky Gorge may be one of the best waterfalls in New Hampshire for a wedding. It's close to the parking area and very scenically located in the White Mountain National Forest. The ease of access, parking and beauty make this worthy of putting on your list of waterfalls to check out for your search for an outdoor NH wedding location.
