Quite an adventure. A trek up the mountain right next to the flume. Beautiful views, a gorgeous covered bridge, several waterfalls, glacial boulders, rushing water, lots of moss... Worth walking up every step. Fee charged to enter. We enjoyed it very much.

We spontaneously came across Flume Gorge. We didn't know we needed snow shoes inorder to get to the gorge because it's January and super snowy and icy...however that was not a problem. Layout's was the local sports shop who were SUPER friendly and helpful. We rented snow shoes for $15 and had an AMAZING experience! The views were spectacular, hike... More

My husband and I do a lot of hiking, we were really excited because it looks so beautiful. It's expensive to get in, and this is what I would call a "McDonalds" hike. Everything is planned for you, it's not challenging, you can't go explore on your own. You pay to take a walk. Yeah, there are some beautiful things... More

We walked the trail here and found it very relaxing. The section through the actual gorge gets a bit crowed with picture taking and a narrow boardwalk. Overall a nice place for a hike!

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
