Lost River Reservation

According to the Society for the Protection of NH Forests who own the land and lease it to a private
Paradise Falls - Lost River
nonprofit group White Mountain Attractions:

"Located in the White Mountains town of North Woodstock, Lost River Reservation is set high in Kinsman Notch, one of the area’s most famous passes. Located between Mt. Moosilauke and Mt. Kinsman, Kinsman Notch is about 2,000 feet above sea level. Lost River is so-named because the brook draining from the southeast part of Kinsman Notch disappears below the surface in the narrow, steep-walled glacial gorge. The gorge is partially filled with immense blocks of granite, through which the brook cascades along its subterranean course until it eventually emerges and joins the Pemigewasset River.

Today, the portion of the property that includes the gorge is leased to White Mountains Attractions Association, which provides guests with the opportunity to experience the fun, challenge, and excitement of the river, gorge, boulders and caves. Well-maintained boardwalks and staircases allow the public to access the gorge while providing the maximum amount of safety possible. Lost River Gorge welcomes thousands of visitors each year from all over the world."
