Rocky Gorge is a waterfall and the name of a scenic and picnic area along the Swift River in the White Mountain National Forest of New Hampshire, United States, next to the Kancamagus Highway. Swimming is not permitted in the falls at Rocky Gorge because of a near-fatal accident involving Dorothy Sparks in 1942. At least two other non-fatal accidents, each involving two people, have occurred since 1942.Use our Bartlett trip planner to visit Rocky Gorge on your trip to Bartlett, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
Rocky Gorge reviews
This picnic area is probably the best, because its not as crowded as the Lower falls picnic area or the Sabbaday falls... The bridge over the water is awesome, where you can see the water gushing... more »
This gorge is a very easy hike from the parking lot on the Kanc. A nice display of the power of water and ice. more »
