Nice afternoon walk up the gorge. Path was easy. Lots of steps as you get further up the gorge. Walk is very manageable for all, even toddlers ( our 2 and 3 year olds had no problem). Well worth it if I’m the area. Strongly...More

Nature is just so beautiful. A great trek through the gorge is a fantastic family activity. The power of water, in nature, is breathtaking to behold.

Beautiful scenery on your way to the gorge but be forewarned there is a serious incline with each section of decking you go up as you walk through. Many people, myself included had to keep stopping to take a break and talk about sore calves...More

We spent part of our day here. The hike around the gorge can be easy if you take the short cuts or harder depending on your hiking ability. Great photo ops!

Great walk, beautiful scenery. Our first time in the White Mountains. Worth the price and the time for wonderful views.

Great hike, with very well maintained trails. I will agree with the other posts that paying the “entrance fee” is well worth the experience. The hike is not difficult and there are plants of benches along the way for those that are not used to...More

Flume gorge will take your breath away with all the waterfalls, pathways, bridges and views. It is definitely not like anything we've ever seen. Not to be missed.

I was a little hesitant to spend $70ish for my family of 5 for a hike. Especially when there are hundreds of places to hike in the area for free or a small lfee. BUT, it was worth every penny. We went after a night...More
