WOODSTOCK, N.H. (AP) - The Lost River Gorge and Boulder Caves in New Hampshire is expanding to include an “out-of-the-gorge” experience.

The project consists of a new, 750-foot-long forest adventure trail that guides visitors through a covered bridge and into the woods. Visitors on a boardwalk are surrounded by woods on the way to the Forest Treehouse, which features life-size animal carvings. Visitors can follow the trail up to a birdcage overlook and cross back over Lost River Gorge on a new, 60-foot-long suspension bridge.

An event dedicating the new expansion, Lost River’s first since 1984, is scheduled for Friday, July 10, at noon. Visitors that day may participate in a scavenger hunt and qualify to win prizes, such as a season-long pass to Lost River Gorge, a Lantern Tour package and a White Mountains Attractions pass.

The gorge in Woodstock is one of New Hampshire’s oldest attractions, and in 2012, celebrated 100 years of preservation by the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests.

Visitors descend into the gorge and follow the boardwalks to explore jagged rock walls, gigantic boulders, rock-strewn glacial caves and cascading waterfalls.
