Facilities - There is a main tourism office with a cafe, restrooms, and a small trinket shop. It was all clean and well maintained. There is a cost to go to the gorge which was a little more than we typically spend but it was worth it. Trails - The trails were well maintained, clearly marked, and pretty smooth. There... More

This is an exhilarating walk in beautiful countryside. The walkway has been carefully planned and is well maintained. Whilst we were there rain shelters were under construction - an added bonus.

Came during leaf peeping season. The hike itself wasn't difficult. We did the full hike, no bus ride. The views were spectacular and the trail was pretty wide. There were many different spots to stop and take pictures. It was absolutely worth the time and money!!

This is a beautiful scenic trail and the gorge is breathtaking. We were there when the fall foliage was peaking and it was a delightful experience. It does involve a lot of walking and climbing stairs and walking up and down the slope..we loved it.

Due to dry summer and being fall most falls had little flow. The Flume was better than most. A good walk - about 2 miles. Well worth the exercise

A walk to and around Flume Gorge is ideal if you want to get some exercise on holiday and also admire the forces of nature at work. You can get the best experience if you go for the full walk into the gorge, but shorter walks are available and you can use the shuttle bus if you don't want to... More

We were on the way to Lincoln and decided to go to flume gorge on the way , especially as it had started snowing and thought this might add to it. Entrance fee is about $17 if I remember correctly , you get a small bus trip to start you on your way over the bridge. You follow the trail... More
