This was probably the activity I enjoyed the most. Weather continued to stay beautiful. Two mile hike up the gorge. Lots of stairs and walking up hill. Husband took dozens of pictures. Water falls were breathtaking. Highly recommend this activity

What a beautiful place to visit. You will need to be physically able to be see these wonders and it can be quite a trek, but well worth it!

We visited the Flume Gorge on our way back from Vermont. As we were short on time we took the bus to the start of the gorge then walked up to the top. There are a lot of steps and they can be slippery if wet. Fortunately it was a dry day when we visited and I would imagine that... More

The place is beautifull, sure thing. great sights and beauty of nature. The whole trail is perfectly maintained and easy to hike. Problem is 15$ each fees, for less than 1.5h....If you have kids or not want to hike in the wild, that's the place. But if you can, it can be passed

If you make a trip to the White Mountains this is a must see - Yes, price is a bit high but the gorge and falls are so beautiful and unique it is worth the money. The hike is 2 miles but try not to do it backwards like we did - much easier if you hit the gorge first... More

very interesting to learn all about how this gorge was formed and to climb right next to it and over it. And amazing how people were able to make that possible with their engineering ingenuity. Included nice wooded trails. Total of two miles. As long as you can climb stairs it's a very do-able experience for most people.

Went there with some friends in a Summer weekend. The direction from my Garmin GPS and from google map were both incorrect, so we had to ask people around o find the right location. However, their official website did give guidance on how to find the entrance. We should've followed that guidance... Anyway, the trip was totally worthy. The view... More

We went to Flume Gorge on a Monday morning near the end of August. Knowing this is a popular attraction, we arrived about 15 minutes before they opened (at 9am) and ate breakfast in the parking lot before we could begin our hike. I'm glad we did. We encountered only 4 people during our entire 2-hour hike and got to... More
