Polar Caves image
Rumney, NH
(range: 5 miles)
Polar Caves were formed during the last Ice Age when a glacier moved across the landscape, dropping granite boulders at the base of what’s now known as Hawk’s Cliff. As they fell, the boulders formed passageways, around and through which, we’ve built boardwalks and stairs to allow for deeper exploration.  (This excerpt taken from the Polar Caves website)

This is the largest Wilderness on the White Mountain National Forest. Between 1880 and 1940, what is now the Pemigewasset Wilderness contained the largest logging railroad system in the White Mountains, including 72 miles of train lines. Over 1 billion board feet of timber was removed from the 66,000 acre watershed. In 1907, a 10-day wildfire fed on leftover logging slash. After years of unsustainable logging and the enormous fire of 1907, the Pemigewasset Wilderness has re-grown to include beautiful terrain for backpacking, hiking, and experiencing nature. (This excerpt taken from the Pemigewasset Wilderness website)
Lost River Gorge image
Woodstock, NH
(range: 15 miles)
The Lost River Gorge & Boulder Caves, located in New Hampshire’s Kinsman Notch in the White Mountains, is a land of spectacular beauty forged by the powerful forces of water, wind, weather, and time. The shaping of Kinsman Notch and the surrounding mountains began about 300 million years ago. The Ice Age brought glaciers more than a mile thick that grounded, lifted, and deposited rocks that formed notches and mountains. When the ice melted, the water carried debris, eroding the rocks and forming Lost River Gorge. (This excerpt taken from the Lost River Gorge website)
