Paradise Falls in Lost River Gorge


Paradise Falls is a beautiful 20-foot plunge waterfall located within the Lost River Gorge and Boulder Caves Reservation in North Woodstock, New Hampshire. The waterfall can be accessed via the Lost River boardwalk at about the halfway point of the 0.6-mile loop trail. The boardwalk goes right along the waterfall and it allows visitors to see the waterfall head-on and also from a birds-eye perspective. 

The Lost River Gorge Reservation is open from May to October. The waterfall itself often flows the strongest during the springtime, so many visitors go early in the season to catch the waterfall at full force. That said, it is a wonderful location to visit year-round.

Dogs are not allowed (except for service dogs) at the Lost River Gorge Reservation.
