“Pretty hike but too expensive and crowded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

We stopped here on a very rainy Saturday afternoon and paid the $15 entrance fee because we had heard the Flume was worth the price. It was very nice, but I've seen hiking trails and waterfalls that were just as nice without paying a cent. My primary frustration was that the park was buried in tourists despite the rain and it was nearly impossible to photograph a bridge or waterfall without half a dozen people getting in the photo, including people crossing barriers to walk in the water.

“What am I missing?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

We were in the area and considered visiting this until we heard the price. Are you kidding? We've been hiking all over the country seeing gorges and waterfalls and walking through woods for free. Who pays $15 a person for that? If you're in the area, go see the basin. Very cool. Or if you have money you want to give away, come to Flume Gorge.

“Beautiful but expensive.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Nice walk in the forest with beautiful views. Easy to walk. There was a bus for the first half mile, which was the easiest part of the trip. This should not be offered (and could decrease the entrance fee of 15 dollars).

“Beautiful view”

The Flume is really a beautiful place to visit but I won't pay the $15 dollars per person for a 2 mile hike again
