Description
Rather than turn back when he found that he had taken the wrong road en route to a land grant at Landaff, pioneer Asa Kinsman, his wife and two Woodstock townsmen hacked their way through the rugged intervening miles to their destination. Thus was traversed—and named—Kinsman Notch, a pass between Mount Moosilauke and the Kinsman Range.
Kinsman, like the other White Mountain notches, was deepened and widened by the Pleistocene ice sheet. As the glaciers melted and frost weakened the fractures in the north face of the notch, huge blocks of granite plunged into Lost River Gorge to form the narrow passages among which the river gets lost.
