ⓘ Soucook River

The Soucook River is a 29.2-mile-long river located in central New Hampshire in the United States. It is a tributary of the Merrimack River, which flows to the Gulf of Maine.

The Soucook river begins at the outlet of rocky pond on the border between Canterbury and Loudon, new Hampshire. The river flows South through gently rolling terrain, soon entering Loudon, passing near the international highway of new Hampshire. The river passes through the village of Loudon, crossing a small dam, and continues South along the rapidly developing suburban corridor on the outskirts of Concord. The river forms the boundary between Concord and Pembroke and ends at the Merrimack river downstream from Garvins falls.

There are extensive sand and gravel deposits that fill the valley of Soucook river, which led to the creation of several major works near the river. New Hampshire route 106 Parallels the river throughout its course, crossing the river four times.
