This was such a beautiful place! We went in May. The bridge was not set up yet due to ice. We were very disappointed to not be able to go all the way through, but the views were still awesome. We will go back someday during the summer to get the full experience.

Beautiful two-mile walk in the woods. Beware that there are some steep hills and steps involved, but a 6-year-old can handle it no problem. Very cool narrow gorge of granite and basalt, with just enough informative signage to keep information hounds interested. Also a couple of covered bridges. My only complaint is the steep price for the privilege of spending... More

I remember the Flume from years ago and had the chance to revisit a few weeks ago with my wife, who had never been. Well maintained boardwalks and stairs make this a great "back to nature" walk for people who don't have the physical ability or desire to trek deep into the woods, although still not for those with significant...

Do not miss Flume Gorge. It is a relaxing walk along the gushing water amongst the butterflies. We took the bus for first half mile because of of our little ones and comfortably finished the rest.

What a beautiful place to visit!! Some may be put off by price of entry since it was $29 for two of us, but I believe it is probably a necessary price for upkeep to keep the trail safely able to be traveled. It takes about 2 hours to enjoy and is well worth every dollar!

Great way to spend the day hiking and enjoying nature. This is a strenuous trail so don't plan on rushing. Parts are at a 45 degree angle, but the nature view are GORGEOUS! Take your time and enjoy the hike

It had been almost50 years since I had visited the Flume Gorge as a child. I was fascinated with it then, enough so that when my wife and I took a trip to New England in July, this place was on my list of places to go. I was not disappointed and my wife loved it, as well. A little... More

The Flume Gorge is a great place to take a 2 mile hike and view nature's beauty. Plan to spend about 2 hours walking through the trails and wooden pathways. There is inclined walking and steps throughout, but should not be a problem if you take your time. Recommended that you were hiking shoes. There are boardwalks that let's you... More

Well worth a visit if you are touring through the mountains. Lots of tourist info at the park centre and a video about the flume. The flume itself is pretty and there is a nice cooling most during the summer. Few walks around which aren't too difficult and take in some great river views.

I didn't realize that the flume was less than half the entire trail. There were a few more pretty views along the way, but a good chunk was just hiking through the woods. That said, the flume was stunning! Simply breathtaking and totally worth the admission. The path and stairs were clearly marked, sturdy, and easy to manage. I traveled... More
