We walked the 2 mile trail. Beautiful waterfalls and beautiful trees. There is also a covered bridge. There is a shorter walk for those who do not or can't walk the 2 mile trail.

We visited at the end if August which is nice since the was warm but not hot for the walk through the trails. There are some hills and loose gravel but it is not a difficult walk. I wore a good pair of sneakers and had no trouble at all. I was surprised how many people were walking it in... More

If you like nature, hikes and to be surrounded by green and the fresh air, you are in the right place. Flume gorge is one of the most amazing places that I ever seen. The visitor center is very organized, clean and also has a bus to help some people who wants to cut the walking distance a bit. The... More

This was a very nice attraction. Plenty of scenery for great photos. Shuttle bus can take you part of the way on the path.

The flume is one of the areas attraction that we would visit again and again and never get tired off, the falls are magnificent, and it is a view to love, if you are a nature lover.

Nice modern visitor center starts you on a walking tour of Flume & its environs. Well maintained boardwalk leads you to breathtaking falls. Continue on the trail through covered walking bridge over natural basin. Glacial boulders along the path are picture worthy. A must-see!

Easy and interesting - a gorge and water. Worth doing - you can be up and down within an hour. There were also two covered bridges to view as well

We went with a family of four (daughters are 9 and 11) in mid-August, 2014. It's $15/adult, $12/child, probably about a 90 minute-to-two hour experience, and it is excellent. While there is a bus available to cut some of the walk down, I would strongly suggest you make the effort to take the 1.6 mile hike, which is a loop.... More

We were just passing through on our way from Vermont to New York and took the long way through Franconia Notch State Park. We decided on visiting Flume Gorge. Wonderful experience. We had a 2 and 6 year old and had no problem with the 2 mile round trip hike up to the top of the gorge and waterfalls. On... More

We happened upon this park by accident as we were making our way from Boston to Montreal and decided to take the time to stop. As unplanned stops go, it was a nice one. With an admission cost of $15 each, it was a little pricey, especially given that we only stayed about two hours. But it is an amazing... More
