Walked this with a friend. The walk was easy enough, some inclines, but the photos I took were gorgeous! One tip, wear sensible shoes please! Although the trail is well maintained, the boardwalk can be wet so wear good shoes. This is a great place to stop if you are driving through the area!

This is a great place to go for some pretty neat photos! The hike is generally easy and I would say most people can complete it. There is a quick route if you want to opt out of the entire thing.. But if you can do it, I say complete it!

I wasn't sure what to expect from Flume Gorge but we were certainly impressed. We visited in fall season on a rainy day. Some reviewers say it is worth the walk but to my mind it IS the walk that makes this attraction special. It's the trees, the foliage, the views of the nearby mountains and yes the gorge that...

This is a fairly easy hike for anyone without any debilitating health conditions. There is so much to see along the hike both to the top as well as going back down. Countless different rock formations, and with constant changes in the water flows, each time you return you will be guaranteed to have a completely different view. This is... More

This is not an easy hike, but most people could do it without much effort. There are some uphill sections and some stairs, but if you take your time, the pay off is probably worth it. The hike follows a stream upward, providing many chances for great photos. A couple of bridges, waterfalls, and dramatic valley shots. It's an easy... More

Not too strenuous a walk, interesting, nice wooden walkways up the Gorge, good photo opportunities. Do it on a nice day and breath in the fresh air and lovely woodlands.

My 10 year old loved climbing through the caves. You don't need to go into the caves to enjoy the natural beauty. They have a wood walkway that winds through the gorge. It takes about an hour to go through the gorge.

I don't know why this place gets such great reviews. I was really looking forward to checking it out, based on the reviews, but I was incredibly disappointed. The walk in the woods is nice, as is the gorge. But it's not exceptional. There are a lot of other places in the area that are just as scenic or more... More

We took this one hour walk in the fall. It was beautiful, fall leaves, waterfalls, and being at one with nature. It was well worth the small entrance fee and a must do.
