Hiking the flume gorge is relatively easy. There are a lot of gravel pathways and steep grades, but it was easy for my 5 year old to navigate. There was something incredible to look at every few feet! Tons of waterfalls, much to the delight of my kids. There is also an beautiful covered bridge and many views of streams.... More

I was born in a tropical island and have been to many beautiful mountainous hikes filled with streams. Yet Flume Gorge in NH is still one of the most impressive hikes i have been on. If you like forest, waterfalls and cool streams gushing down the rocks, you would absolutely love this hike. The sceneries just get better and better... More

Fabulous trail. Beautiful rocks, water, canyon, nature. If I lived here I would go monthly even at $16. Worth ever penny. Absolutely gorgeous.

Absolutely beautiful! The cost was admittedly a bit high ( 16$ each) but very well worth it. The gorge was beautiful and a great experience. The trails were well maintained and it was overall a great way to spend a couple hours.

This place was truly inspiring and I loved every minute of the experience and the hike. It's an incredibly hike and it's one that I think you could do it over and over again and never be bored. It was peaceful and invigorating all at the same time. Plus as a bonus, the shirts in the gift shop were solid... More

This was a highly recommended spot, so we decided to check it out. Our family of four cost $64, but it was a great walk. If you have kids, there is a scavenger hunt available at the information desk. There are steps and uphill climbs involved, but the steps are easy and the uphill climbs are relatively short. The work... More

Hiked with our 8 yr old grandson. The path is wide and easier as far as pebbles or rocks in the way than other trails. Honestly I didn't feel there were that many stairs to climb as it seemed broken up. When the Table Rock comes into view it just keeps getting better and better from there. Just a wonderful... More

I came into town this week for relaxing and was told to check this out. I am on a budget so I was a little uneasy paying $20 to take a wLk, but it was amazing. Absolutely breathtaking views. The water was rushing through strong today. Enjoy!

Our family of four stopped to visit the Gorge on our way from Boston to Quebec. The park is huge, and the gorge is in one section of the park. If you plan on visiting the gorge or the larger park, I'd suggest starting at the park visitor center where they can orient you with the park, provide maps and... More

Hike is a bit of work but just take your time and bug spray for the wooded trek back. The gorge is spectacular. Do yourself a favor and book the package with the cannon mountain tramway. Also a nice excursion.
