Although it is a bit expensive for a 2-mile hike, it was worthevery penny. Once you get to the water, the ealk up to the top is amazing. You walk directly through the gorge! They have a shuttle that will take you about 1/2 mile up the road, but the walk is much nicer. We got there late in the afternoon and there was almost no one there. Plenty of photo ops. Plan to spend about 2 hours.

It's a two mile hike but takes longer since you stop along the way many times to take in the beauty of nature. The coolest thing of course was the flume gorge and you just want to stop to take pictures. We became those annoying tourists that constantly stop to take photos, but for $15 pp times 10 of us I'm gonna enjoy it (ahem…to the lady who rolled her eyes at us!) Avalanche falls, the sentinel pine bridge and squeezing through the wolf den were also cool. Definitely not a peaceful hike but more of a tourist attraction, a good way to see what hiking in NH has to offer, only on a grander scale and in one location when your time is limited.

Really loved this little hike and the prize at the end is the deep narrow gorge with rushing water. Went to "Lost River" many years ago and this seemed similar. Really nicely kept and well-organized, nice visitors' center and gift shop. The hike isn't too hard but not for everyone.

We got there shortly after 9:30 and had a very enjoyable walk up. It was a little crowded and hot as we walked back down and were glad to have arrived early.

Beautiful scenery and a good walk. Plenty of great photo ops throughout the adventure. The entire tour does not take a long time so you have time for other activities throughout the day.
I personally thought the $15 per person was too much. There were many people once you get to the 'boardwalk' portion of the trail. There were a number of times I would have liked to be more adventurous, but there are restrictions! Avoid feeling rushed if you want to linger at one spot.
A few places reminded me of the movie Last of the Mohicans. Take time in the building where you buy the tickets, cool historical facts and great pictures. There is a nice little gift shop and a snack shop (did not eat there).
