Good trip. We arrived at approximately 4 pm and made our way to the entrance of the trail. It was a short easy hike to the gorge, and along the way we encountered several plaques that detailed the history of the gorge, as well as the surrounding scenery. We saw water cascading over rocks, as well as a bridge that had beautiful views of the gorge from both sides. A short hike further, we saw a beautiful clean pond that was surrounded by nature.

Tip: I recommend spending 30 minutes here if you truly want to see everything.

There is a foot bridge over the Swift River that is an easy walk from the parking lot. The foot trail to the bride is paved most of the way.
There is no entry fee to any of the sites along the Kanc, but parking permits can be bought in each parking lot.

We visited this attraction along “The Kanc” on an unseasonably warm, beautiful sunny Wednesday in October. The parking lot was full, but people came and went frequently, so we didn't have much of a wait to find a parking spot at 3:15 p.m. It doesn't take long to just view the Gorge, allow 15 minutes or less. Many people were lounging on the rocks in the sun, and cooling their feet in the water. But if you are interested in an easy, less than 1 mile loop walk, to have some solitude away from the crowds, then continue over the Gorge on the footbridge and up the path to the start of the Lovequist Loop Trail. We took the trail clockwise (to the left) around Falls Pond. On the other side of the Pond we were able to take some nice photos of the reflections of the trees in the Pond, particularly nice with the fall colors. There were a couple of very muddy spots on the trail toward the end of the loop. We spent 25 minutes walking the loop and taking pictures.

This trip was amazing! It was a cold, windy day though. It was a little frightening on the bridge though. I believe the trails went to a beautiful pond.

I'm not quite sure why this is a "reviewable" place, as it's a naturally formed area. I have, however, loved it for my whole life although I wish it were still not so "known" as an "attraction". Just too many people there at any given time!

This was a very nice gorge and just a short path to walk. Very picturesque with the bridge going across. Definitely worth stopping and spending a few minutes enjoying the view. No swimming!

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 through the gorge (even in late summer).

Best of fall, continue on the path after the bridge and you will find yourself in probably the most serene spot on the Planet... The Falls Pond... You will be AMAZED at the peace that prevails near that pond!

They take "America The Beautiful" pass.. don't leave home without it, if you have one... else, its $5 for parking.

Rocky gorge is off the Kancamagus highway. The gorge has been carved out over the last ten thousand years with the power of water and ice. It’s absolutely breathtaking. Walk on the huge granite rocks and witness the waterfall up close. There is a short trail that leads to Falls pond. A beautiful place to explore.

Rocky Gorge is easy to get to, just park and walk a little bit. The rock formations are amazing and you can walk out there as far as you're comfortable doing so. Definitely a go-to spot whenever we're in the area.
