This was a very beautiful hike and was really something that you cannot capture in photographs. We had a very nice time and would recommend this attraction to others. Note that there are a lot of steps and hills on this hike and some may have trouble with this.

Being senior citizens, we took the bus ride that was offered that shortened the hike to the Flume Gorge. It was amazing and worth the walk.

The walk was easy, in parts some stairs but not difficult and we are in our 60's. Make sure you wear the correct shoes and carry a bottle of water. The scenery is beautiful and the fall colours added to the beauty. The gorge was packed when we were there. The weather was very warm and the whole area was... More

While it was beautiful and definitely showcased nature at it's finest, I didn't think it was worth what we paid. I would rather hike some trails, go visit the basin, and the cascades in the area.

The hike was a lot longer than we thought it would be with a lot of stairs (2.5 miles) Yes, it is expensive, but it is beautiful and my husband and I thought it was worth it. We didn't have a lot of time in the White Mountains & they've made the Flume Gorge extremely accessible.

I remember, as a kid, my parents took the whole family to see The Flume. It was unforgettable, to say the least. It was still very beautiful, and pretty well maintained, except for the occasional discarded candy bar wrapper or plastic bottle. Given the size of the crowd that was there on Columbus Day weekend, the place was relatively clean.... More

I agree with the last few reviews. It is nature at its best, the waterfalls, rocks, power are amazing. $15 is not too much to pay. After all, it is a State Park and very few of them throughout the country break even. The walk down is easy but the walk back is strewn with rocks and tree roots and... More

Actually, the line moved very quickly, and I twas definitely worth it. I was surprised to see how many people were there visiting this natural site. Its pretty easy to walk through everything, which was important since my wife was pregnant at the time.

nice walk in the gorge, includes steps. We visited in a dry period so river was quiet.Great landscapes and if you are looking for covered bridges you will find them on trail.
