Little Dead Diamond River

The Little Dead Diamond River rises in the town of Clarksville, New Hampshire near the north end of Crystal Mountain, a seven mile long ridge with elevations ranging from 2,400 to 3,300 feet above sea level. Mount Pisgah (3,081 ft) lies just to the north of the headwaters. The river flows east into the Atkinson and Gilmanton Academy Grant, where it is joined by its west branch. The river then enters the Dartmouth College Grant and is joined by its south branch. The Little Dead Diamond then turns north, reenters the Atkinson and Gilmanton Grant, and joins the Dead Diamond River near the rapids and old logging camp known as Hell Gate.

Dead Diamond River

The Dead Diamond River is an 18.7-mile-long (30.1 km) river in northern New Hampshire in the United States. Its water enters the Atlantic Ocean on the coast of Maine by passing through the Magalloway, Androscoggin, and Kennebec rivers.

The Dead Diamond River is formed in the township of Atkinson and Gilmanton Academy Grant, New Hampshire by the juncture of the Middle Branch and the East Branch of the Dead Diamond. It is quickly joined by the West Branch of the Dead Diamond and heads south through logging country. The Little Dead Diamond River joins from the west at Hell Gate, a set of rapids, just before the Dead Diamond enters the Dartmouth College Grant. The river traverses the length of the college grant before reaching the Magalloway River near the Maine border. The Swift Diamond River is a significant tributary which joins the Dead Diamond shortly upstream of the Magalloway.
