The gorge is stunning and the access to such a natural place is unusual and fascinating. The hike takes a bit of effort (I saw some older people struggling but there is a shuttle part way there and back for those that are not up to it) and the paths are broad and well maintained. Well worth doing the loop... More

In winter, this is a beautiful hidden gem. 20 minute walk in, over a steady incline will get you to the Flume allowing you to see some amazing ice structures, in a narrow gorge. Ice climbers will be there early on, so if you want to see some really fantastic sites, get there and watch them prepare and climb. Parking... More

Even though it was hot out, once you got down inside the gorge, it was just right. My kids had a great time! There are several places where you can climb down under the rocks. There are maps at each one that show you where you are in the gorge and where you will be going when you go under.... More

Like all of our visit at Lincoln NH, this was a great surprise. Be prepared to climb. It isn't difficult for the average person but could be taxing on one unaccustomed to light/medium exercise. Regardless, brave it because it is very cool.

The Flume Gorge itself is absolutely beautiful. However, there were many drawbacks to this hike. First off, the line to get in took forever to get through, and there were so many noisy people and kids that it was hard to enjoy. I was trying to enjoy a nice hike with my dad but it was next to impossible when... More

I have been all over the US. Flume gorge is the most awesome place I have EVER been. Take the hike and enjoy. But take a jacket with you. You'll need it.

Walked this with a friend. The walk was easy enough, some inclines, but the photos I took were gorgeous! One tip, wear sensible shoes please! Although the trail is well maintained, the boardwalk can be wet so wear good shoes. This is a great place to stop if you are driving through the area!

This is a great place to go for some pretty neat photos! The hike is generally easy and I would say most people can complete it. There is a quick route if you want to opt out of the entire thing.. But if you can do it, I say complete it!
