Do not miss this amazingly beautiful area. It's lovely to start but the higher you go, the more beautiful it gets. It's also very cool in the gorge which makes it a nice escape if the heat in the valley feels oppressive. Take your time and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Flume.

The Flume is a narrow rock gorge with a wooden walkway/staircase winding up it. It is uphill (with somewhat steep staircases in places), but I hiked up with our 3 month old in a sling and I was fine (and sadly I am not super fit). This is obviously not a place for strollers. The Flume is truly an amazing... More

When you're in New Hampshire this is one of the "must" places to see. It's a bit of a hike (about 2 miles round trip) with some steep inclines and stairs but every bit of it is worth it. The Gorge itself is beautiful and once you pass through and hike to the pools you will see what I mean.... More

Great place for a family trip. Spectacular scenery but physically challenging. Very young children may not be able to walk all the way and carrying them may prove difficult for all but the very physically fit.

This was my family's absolute favorite activity during our White Mountain vacation. Many told us it was a 1 1/2 hour activity, but we spent over 3 hours at the Flume Gorge. We purchased our tickets (we got the combo pass with the Cannon Mt. Tramway) and walked to the gorge. All the trails are well marked and easy to... More

Well maintained walking trail. Some stairs at times can be a little steep. Lots of beauty. Take your time and relax and enjoy! I loved to just stop and listen to the water cascading down... We were there June 2013, the weather was perfect.

This was my husbands first time and my 4th time at the flume. It doesn't matter how many times I have been here the beauty is spectacular ! My husband loved it and couldn't stop taking pictures. We got the combined ticket to the cannon aerial tramway, very much worth the money!

This place is really gorgeous. You can take the short walk (I did because I had my mom with me) or the long walk. There is even a bus to take you up to where you start walking. The gorge is awesome and the way they built the stairs into the side of the gorge is really great so you... More
