Bit of a hike on uneven ground, but breathtaking views. Surprised at number of people there during the week, definitely don't go on a weekend!

Avalanche Falls are part of the Flume Gorge hike and are at the highest point in the walk. Waterfall is nice but the walk to get there (and back) is even nicer

Nice fall right at the end of flume george. The stairs leading to the fall gives different magnificent view from start to end. Though the height of fall is not much but still surroundings make it quite a view and water coming out gives a refreshing effect.

We hiked the Flume Gorge trail from beginning to end, taking us about 2hrs in total (with lots of stops for photo ops along the way!) One of the highlights of the trail is Avalanche Falls at the top of the gorge, about midway along the trail. The falls thunder down a rock cut and you can stand in its... More

One of my favorite things to see are falls. I love to see the power and majesty of them. I love the small ones and the large ones. Avalanche Falls was well worth the effort.

I do not want to give you the impression that Avalanche Falls is the reason to go to the Flume Gorge. Therefore, I gave it a four star rating but the experience itself is a FIVE PLUS. The flume comes cascading over the falls and into a perpendicularly walled gorge as high as 90 feet in some places and as... More

Its hard to snag a good picture here. The waterfall is quite stunning. Theres another waterfall if you continue on the trail, if you want a good picture, you'll need a little patience.

You have to hike the flume gorge to get to it but it is worth the time and effort. On a hot day the spray was a cooling relief and once past you dry off quickly in the warmth of the sun.

You reach this falls after a mild hike and the whole hike is an enjoyable experience with lot of greenery around. a wooden pathway leads up to the falls and sometimes you may need to wait for some time to get a clear snap of the fall as there may be other visitors blocking the view, but the wait is...

On the narrow gorge section of the Flume gorge where the boardwalk clings to the steep walls of the ravine half way to the top trails through the woodlands and on and then down to the Sentinel Pine bridge over the cascade brook. The avalnche falls tuble over a rockks scree in a fine display of wwhite water.
