The breathtaking view is worth the climb

It’s not easy, starts off easy but the climb up is very steep. Views are great !

Nice hike. Lots of people, but spectacular views and not difficult. says dog friendly. some people were not happy about dogs on trail.... downright cranky about it. won't do this particular trail with the dog again.

What an amazing hike!! I'm new to hiking and somewhat out of shape but once at the top it was amazingly beautiful. For myself, at 58, it was somewhat challenging but I'm going back for foliage I believe

loved it. easy hike. nice view.

Solid hike with great views at the end.

if you are looking for a hike to get a medium workout and excellent view under 3 hours (time to relax at top for a while) this is the one. I am 60, don't do elevations any more. well worth a little heavy breathing as you're climbing from the top of the notch and looking down into the bottom off cliffs on east side.

The other recent reviews are spot on! Steady incline, approximately two hours, easy side of moderate, gorgeous views at the top. Going down was a bit trickier because of the loose rocks so I’d recommend taking it slower and watching your footing. Took one hour to get to the top and about the same to get down. Park in the railroad station parking lot and behind the station is a sign that says P85...that’s the entrance.

Love it. Relatively easy for most everyone.

The hike itself is pretty in spots but I don't think it's worth paying for. It's a very easy walk with very minimal elevation gain and is heavily traveled so expect to wait behind people on the boardwalk.

A quick hike with an amazing view of the White Mountains! Well worth the time!

Love this hike! If you have kids I wouldn't call it easy...it is a quick hike but towards the top it made me nervous with the kids because of the steep rocks. Overall though, AMAZING!

Amazing views all around. A lot of steps and some moderately steep parts.
Well worth it. Go early and during the week for less crowds.

Nice easy hike, not a flat trail, the last 700 feet are pretty steep, but, hey, you're in the white mountains, nh.

An easy hike with my 7 year old and dog. We did the loop at the top, it was 2.7 miles total. Great views. Very crowded on this fall sunday, had to park on the road.

Most bang for your buck short hike in the white mountain region. Fairly easy, but steep hike. Took about 2 hours in total, including about 20 min break at the top to take in the spectacular views. This one is a must do!

Great view easier hike. Can be up and down in 2 hrs.

Hike was fairly easy for the great views at the end. Very populated and hard to find a spot to get a minute alone to enjoy the views quietly but the views are definitely incredible!

Beautiful views and a really scenic hike to the top.

Definitely the best “bang for the buck” hikes in the Whites. Short and easy, with stunning views of Crawford Notch. Bring your lunch - you’ll want to spend some quality time here.

Great easy hike. Less than an hour. Amazing view.

Much better than expected, I thought it was going to be a crowded tourist trap but The Flume was actually pretty spectacular. The boardwalk goes right through the middle of it, giving you a unique perspective of these amazing waterfalls. Most people turn around at The Flume, but I did the full loop to Liberty Gorge and Cascade which was also beautiful. Definitely worth checking out if you’re in the area. The trails also are very well maintained and well marked. Although the one downside is the $16 dollar entry fee for adults.

This is a great hike with the reward of a spectacular view at the top!! Moderately challenging, roots and rocks—typical New England mountain hike

Great moderate hike with a postcard perfect views. Easy parking at Crawford Depot. Trail is a steady climb with only minor obstacles. Family friendly too. First 2/3 of hike is a steady climb and last 1/3 levels off before the top. Take a peek the natural pool about 1/4 of the way up.

Beautiful walk through the gorge. The scenery is amazing. The incline is not terrible since your climbing stairs and boardwalk. Theres a shuttle part of the way up for those not inclined to walk. The temps ate cooler down in the gorge. Great family walk. Id rate it as moderate. Bit pricey for the duration but worth the views and time spent in gorge. Also has goft shop and restrooms at entrance
