The Cutler River is a stream located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire in the United States.

Approximately 1.8 miles (2.9 km) in length,[1] it is a tributary of the Ellis River – a part of the Saco River watershed flowing to the Atlantic Ocean in Maine.

The river rises as two branches on the eastern slopes of Mount Washington, the highest peak in the northeastern United States. The western branch, identified as the main stem by some sources, begins in Tuckerman Ravine.[2] The northern branch, shown as the main stem by the U.S. Geological Survey,[3] flows out of Huntington Ravine. The two branches join approximately 0.5 miles (0.8 km) east of the Hermit Lake structures in Tuckerman Ravine and continue east down the side of Mount Washington, joining the Ellis River a short distance above Crystal Cascade, on the western slopes of Pinkham Notch.
