We spent part of our day here. The hike around the gorge can be easy if you take the short cuts or harder depending on your hiking ability. Great photo ops!

Great hike, with very well maintained trails. I will agree with the other posts that paying the “entrance fee” is well worth the experience. The hike is not difficult and there are plants of benches along the way for those that are not used to...More

Flume gorge will take your breath away with all the waterfalls, pathways, bridges and views. It is definitely not like anything we've ever seen. Not to be missed.

This should be a must stop for everyone in the White Mountains. The flume is a fabulous trail loaded with waterfalls, cascades, giant boulders and a walk through the woods. If you are worried about the distance, then begin with the bus to cut off...More

Loved this place. Can't believe I'd never heard of it before. Nature at it's best. Take the Ridge trail. Slightly longer but there's another smaller gorge to see. The walk up the narrow Flume Gorge was worth it all.

We loved this hike through the Flume Gorge. Lots of up and down hills and stairs, but we made the whole 2 mile loop with a 5 and 11 year old. Lots to see and lots of photo opportunities along the way. We went early...More
