We Bet You Didn’t Know There Was A Miniature Royal Gorge In New Hampshire
The geologic forces of nature have shaped New Hampshire into the beautiful state that it is today. These forces, however, are not unique to our state. A stunning example is the massive Royal Gorge in Colorado, which has been carved out by the Arkansas River. We don’t have such chasms here, but there is a much smaller hidden natural wonder in New Hampshire that echoes Royal Gorge known as Devil’s Hopyard.
Devil’s Hopyard, a hidden natural wonder in New Hampshire, is most easily accessed from South Pond Recreation Area (closed in winter) in the town of Stark; a day-use fee is charged. Due to the rugged nature of the trail into the gorge, it is not recommended for dogs. More information is also available in the AMC White Mountain Guide.
If Devil’s Hopyard sounds like a cool place to visit, here are 8 other unique natural features around New Hampshire that are worth checking out.
