This is a 2 mile nature walk up the mountain which culminates with Avalanche Falls. The opportunity to witness the beautiful foliage surrounding the trail is worth every penny paid. Other things to check out along the trail include the bear cave, wolf den, and various lookout points. Back at the visitor center, there is a gift shop, some artifacts... More

A walk along the flume gorge was probably one of the best walks I have ever had in the midst of nature. Walking along the rapid, on a clearly marked out and well maintained terrain, you will feel one with nature. Good weekend break if you are in the New England area.

I'm not a hiker, but I LOVE this hike! The visitor's Center estimates this to be a two-hour hike, but I take my time and really enjoy the scenery with an all-morning leisurely hike. There is something to take my breath away at every turn.

I have been here several times. It is so stunning. We have gone with friends, with our kids and just the two of us. Whenever we travel to New England we must go to the gorge. It is absolute breathtaking when you get to the top and look down.

The flume was great! We almost didn't stop here on our trip, but I'm glad we did. Really cool sites, you are literally walking through the gorge! Loved it, I would go back and do it again.

This is one of the few places in tourist land that are truly worth the time and money to go to. My boyfriend and I were floored by how cool this place was. I felt like we were in some magical land and not NH. It was some great exercise and I wish I could've enjoyed it a bit more... More

We saw the website for Flume Gorge and decided we had to go see it for ourselves. It was beautiful! The hike is enjoyable and there was plenty to stop and see along the way. Pictures can't do justice to the serenity and beauty of the area. There are two covered bridges on the trail that are in great condition... More

Well worth the time and great exercise as well. There is a shuttle to take you to the base of the Flume but the walk there by trail is paved and not strenuous. Be sure to follow the path completely around once you pass thru the Flume to go to the covered bridge. Beautiful in the fall, and I'm sure... More

This was the 2nd time we have went here! Both times was GREAT! If you go after a rain, the falls are flowing much better! But even with normal flow it is worth the trip! If you want to hike more or less you can do it! There is a shortcut back to the visitor center or you can hike... More
