Avalanche Falls are at the end of the trail and they are beautiful! The trail is easy and less than a 20 - 30 minute walk filled with scenic trees, rocks and water. Very serene.

The Avalanche Falls are located at the end of the Flume Gorge and offer the opportunity to relax in this peaceful portion of the gorge at a spot that is right by the falls. You are also able to view and photograph the falls from both above and below them. They are not the tallest falls I've seen or the ones with the greatest volume of water, but they are a perfect finale for the walk through the gorge and are well worth seeing. I do want to comment that I feel the walk back out of the gorge and falls area is a bit more demanding than many indicated when we asked before heading out on the trail. You need to allow time to walk and rest on your way back unless you are accustomed to walking on inclines for several minutes at a time. However, you will be glad you made the trip because the gorge in combination with the falls is truly beautiful.

As others have said, this is part of the Flume Gorge paid attraction. We all really enjoyed this waterfall, and the flume gorge walk. It is really beautiful here. Our kids are ages 6,8,10, and 12. We all had no problem with this walk/hike.

NOTE:: The only way to see this fall is to pay the admission to the Flume Gorge and enjoy the hike. Well worth the money this trail is well kept and beauty likes behind each corner you turn.

Made a quick stop here and walked to the falls - well the dry summer made these a trickle but still worth a visit. Objectionable people clambering all over the viewing sight detracted from this - I suggest inconsiderate people are pushed over the edge by the park rangers.

I visited here while on a two-week bus tour. Very few of us made the trek to Avalanche Falls. A few started but turned back. There are some steep climbs on gravel and steps that are slippery when wet. It took me about 75 minutes which the pamphlet gives as the approximate time. I enjoyed it.

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 mist on the trail's boardwalk.

These aren't the biggest or tallest falls in the world, but still beautiful given their setting in majestic Flume Gorge. Just one of the many wonders of Franconia Notch State Park and White Mountains National Forest!

A must see for all ages! (Note, there is no handicap access, and must be in condition to walk/hike the roughly 1.5 mile loop.)

These falls are beautiful and it’s cool to get right up to them on the boardwalk. They then flow right under the walkway which is cool and spooky at the same time. We really enjoyed this highlight of the Flume Trail. It can get really really super crowded so I suggest going early. We finished around 10:30am and there was a huge line when we left.

Part of the flume gorge hike. Very neat and pretty. Long 2 mile hike for someone like me who doesnt hike very often. But it was all worth it!
