What a nice attraction! Just breathtaking! It totally exceeded our expectations. Make sure to wear comfortable closed shoes, and to bring a sweater. The walk was about 2 miles. Take time to take pics and enjoy the gorgeous flume! I'll definitely go back.

This place is amazing. I went with my 2 children 8 and 5. Awesome waterfalls, beautiful hike. Loved it so much that I took my husband, children, sister and her family back in July to do it again!

For those who love the wonder of geology, this is pure joy! The sites are awe inspiring and ever changing. The boardwalk is easy to maneuver and there are good views from everywhere. The beauty never ceases. It was a good choice for a hot day as it was cooler than surrounding areas.

This was one of our first stops while visiting NH for our family vacation. Our family loves hiking and this is a great stop. the kids had no trouble navigating the hike - they are ages 12, 8 and 7 yo. It takes about an hour and is about 2 miles. Temperature changes quickly in the mountains so bring your... More

Nice walk with steps going to the top of the gorge. Not for people who can't navigate hills and steps. Beautiful scenery.

This is is Franconia state park and a little pricey but there is so much more than just the gorge on the 2 mile loop. Word of advise take the path to the flume 1st or you will be going uphill most of the way :). We did it backwards but still enjoyable.

The walk around the Flume is a nice place to cool off on a hot day. We opted to take the bus to the cabin, as we aren't able to walk distances, and we're glad we did. The walk involves many steep walkways and stairs, so pace yourself if you have issues with these. The sight is well worth the... More

The Flume Gorge is a natural gorge extending 800 feet (240 m) horizontally at the base of Mount Liberty within the Franconia Notch State Park. You can visit only the gorge itself or hike a loop that goes up the gorge and comes back another way. We spent a leisurely two hours to hike the entire loop and had a... More
