This was my husbands first time and my 4th time at the flume. It doesn't matter how many times I have been here the beauty is spectacular ! My husband loved it and couldn't stop taking pictures. We got the combined ticket to the cannon aerial tramway, very much worth the money!

This place is really gorgeous. You can take the short walk (I did because I had my mom with me) or the long walk. There is even a bus to take you up to where you start walking. The gorge is awesome and the way they built the stairs into the side of the gorge is really great so you... More

Our walk through the Flume Gorge was beautiful and it is a must-see for anyone in the area. We are giving it 4 stars only because we have hiked and kayaked to similar types of gorges and did not have to pay an entrance fee to see these natural wonders. But we understand the need to support the national parks.... More

We chose to cut off a corner by taking a bus to the start of the trail, but walking the rest of the trail to the end. The bus doesn't cut off too much, but let us off at the small museum--something that we may have missed, had we walked from the beginning. Actually, the main building also is like... More

Worth the money. You can pay for a combined ticket for the flume and the cannon mt. aerial tramway and save a few dollars. The flume gorge is almost surreal - like a dream or something described in a book that you could only imagine. I was in awe. Pictures do not do it justice!

We thought the entrance fee ($15 each) was a little steep for a state park, but it was more than worth it. The Flume, Avalanche Falls, Liberty Gorge and the Sentinel Covered Bridge were all fantastic.

Part of the Franconia Notch State Park, off Rte. 3/93. Well worth visiting while you are in the area. Especially good on a hot summer day, as the mist from falls on the Gorge Brook cools the air like a natural air conditioner. A fairly strenuous walk up a sometimes slippery wood-plank walkway leads past the falls, deep in a... More

I visited the Flume Gorge with my husband and two children (5 and 6). While not the most spectacular waterfalls that I have seen, the Flume Gorge is very interesting from a geological standpoint. The whole walk is enchanting, and there is something new to see around every bend in the trail. My kids loved it, even my daughter who... More
