My wife and I loved the Flume Gorge hike. It was not very strenuous, and super pretty. Being in the actual flume is the best part. The water running beneath you, and the constant breeze make it feel like paradise. The breeze blowing through there actually feels like air conditioning. The only downside was the $16 a person cost. I'm... More

Stunning scenery and a great walk through the forest. Get the pass that gets you on the cable car too saves you $4

Three different options, for people with either limited time or walking ability, which is great. We took the one that bussed you to and from the start of the gorge, because my 75 year old mother wasn't sure how long she'd last. We did make it to the top of the flume and the whole walk is very beautiful, with... More

Very serene and calm. It is an easy climb. Loved the nature walk. We had folks in the group ranging from 8 yr old to 50 yr and everyone enjoyed. Lot of photo opportunities too

I visited here with my fiancée on August 26th, when I visited her for the week of her birthday, and we both enjoyed it immensely. The walking trails are easy, and the scenery is beautiful... It brought back memories of when I would visit with my family when I was younger. I definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a... More

We enjoyed our trip to Flume Gorge. We couldn't go as close as we would have liked due to ice but still enjoyed our visit. Signage could be a bit better with regards to how strenuous the terrain is. Fantastic views made it a fantastic trip.

If you want to see some beautiful scenery and get in a walk at the same time you must visit the Flume Gorge. It's about an hour and a half walk, but well worth it.

After years away, we returned to this beautiful walk up into a gorge, beside burbling water all the way. The dampness from the waterfalls creates some spectacular green moss covered cliff walls, At first, $16 for a hike seems excessive. But as you walk up the many boardwalk pathways needed to enjoy this gorge safely from the inside, you realize... More

We hiked several trails around the Franconia Notch, but this was the best for the rainy day we had since there were guard rails all along the walk and less worry about falling off a cliff or into a river. The Falls are beautiful and the gorge is amazing. Worth the fee.

Reviewers through here prompted us to stop on or white mountains road trip. The Gorge was lengthy with admirable walkways sided up to the rock wall edges. Trails were smooth and wide and easily navigable in flip flops. The walk was scenic with waterfalls but I think it would be expensive for a family to attend. There are other falls... More
