Only did the section up to Cloudland Falls. It was a bit intricate but so gratifying once we got to the falls.

beautiful serene walk thru the flume and gorge and caves although it has a lot of uphill hiking. saw 3 chipmunks and 2 red squirrels and several kinds of birds. want to do it again in the fall.

Did this trail on a Thursday in early June to get up to Liberty and then across the ridge and down to Greenleaf Hut. Definitely a straight up trail and not many view points. Not really fun, except when I hit the Franconia ridge trail. I was super thrilled when I did, finally got a good view for the effort. No scrambling, nothing scary or challenging, no lovely water features (like I assume Falling Waters had). If you're not trying to bag Liberty, I'd say take Falling Waters up to the ridge... it would probably be a little less lame.

I'm a pretty in shape person and avid hiker and this trail kicked my but in the best way! Went up to Liberty than over to Flume than back. Amazing views would do again.

Without a doubt this is a great hike. I just did it for the third time in my life at 72 years old. Sadly, it will be my last time as I no longer posess the agility and balance to safely handle the rocky and sometimes wet downhill sections.I still have the stamina for the uphill sections and I still have a love for the spectacular views from the ridge. This is a must-do hike for anyone who appreciates hikes, climbs and spectacular views. Just don't wait until you are 72 to do it.

Fairly easy hike but great to hike to the lake and the lodge! You can even take a swim when you get to the top!
I also recommend trying this hike in the winter!! It’s so much fun to walk across the frozen lake!! Don’t forget your micro spikes

My favorite hike so far. Breathtaking waterfalls that you actually hike through, across, and up. The parts of the trail after the river-adjacent section gets difficult. Bring plenty of water and some food.

This trail kicked my butt! Not sure how much of that was the 90 degree, 60% humidity weather, but from mile 2 to mile 4 I was begging for it to be over. I’d agree with the other reviews... “stairs on steroids!” The view from the summit was not great for me, and even though there weren’t many people out, it felt too busy at the top because it’s a small summit. The description doesn’t tell you, but the map takes you past Mount Liberty to Mount Flume. I couldn’t make it that far that day! I am looking forward to hiking up Flume one day though, because it seemed like a serious scramble! I prefer scramble to stairs any day

Not bad if a hike. Short, but some rocky and steep areas. The lake was so relaxing and calm, and the hut was cool too! Kinda buggy near the lake, but worth the hike.

Get there early and go when it’s rainy! We were the only ones there, and doors open at 8:30am.

I thought the $16 was a little steep for a 30-45 minute hike through the woods. The gorge was cool but it was really crowded even in a Tuesday afternoon( I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near that place on a weekend). Good hike for families and kids if you want to pay the admission.

This trail was fairly easy to navigate. If you’re not in the best shape....don’t worry. You’ll do fine. The scenery was fantastic. My family enjoyed it thoroughly

Nice easy hike year round.

The elevation made it tough, but my 7 y/o daughter and I had a great time.

Awesome! Awesome! Easy trail, shady, kid friendly. Highly recommend. We went early at 8:30 and very low crowd, cafe was great. One of the nicest venues I’ve been to and I’ve been all over the country.

Only giving it 4/5 because it gets too crowded. But it is super easy and the scenery is nice. I would recommend it to families with children, wouldn't recommend it to experienced hikers.

on The Flume Trail

My husband and I went here on a whim. Thought about it Friday night (Jun 2) and drove 2 hours the following morning (Jun 3). We paid $30/pp for the Flume + Cannon Mtn tramway. We thought the price was worth it for a great experience for beginners to hiking.

The hike to the Flume Gorge was beautiful and easy. The park is kept up very well, we saw replacement wood planks/beams where needed for safety for visitors. There are also covered areas throughout the trail called rain shelters on the map (given at time of ticket purchase).

The hike back from Flume Gorge takes you pass smaller waterfalls and a beautiful area called the Pools.

There was an area called the Wolf Den (clearly marked). It's this small cave that is formed between and underneath large boulder/rock formations. On the Flume Gorge website, it says that visitors can go into it and, if possible, squeeze out the small opening at the top of the cave. My husband and I gave it a shot. As I'm small in size, it was slightly easier for me than my husband. We emerged on the other side and were greeted by two groups of visitors.

The rest of the hike out of the park was very easy and peaceful. Although there were a good number of visitors, at times we were the only 2 on the trail. It was so peaceful, we heard birds chirping and the leaves rustling as the breeze blew through.

We thought the price was worth it and have plans to return during the fall for the foliage.

It cost us $60 to get in to this place and it was only a short walk near the water. The rest was spent walking through the other parts of the trail. Definitely not worth the money for us. We’ve done many, many trails across the United States and this was very disappointing.

Not worth the money you look at Yellowstone glacier Zion national parks it cost $80 for a year pass the trails are well kept up the parks are amazing we paid over $60 bucks to walk one hour and only half of it was near the river I will keep to the big boy trails like the Tetons! They tried telling me it was to do the keep up on the wood path so does the national parks don’t give me that.

One of my favorite trials in the area.

Amazing trail! As others have said here; take falling waters up and enjoy the waterfalls then cross over the Franconia Ridge and go down Old bridal trail. the whole thing took me my dog and my slower friend 8 hours to complete the loop.

Hiked this from the Lincoln Woods Trailhead... about 12.5 miles up to Mt. Flume and back. Nice challenging hike and lots to see!

This was not an easy hike and took us about 6 hours to/from the parking lot with a few breaks and lunch. With a 4 hour round trip from the city, it was a long day but DEFINITELY worth it. Gorgeous views once we reached the second summit and you could see Mt Washington in the distance. The rocky climb and descent was really a meditative experience!

We started at the basin. I think it took us about 4 hours up and down. It was a bit hard at the end but going down was easy. I had my 2 year old in a hiking backpack carrier.

Did lake trail to hi-cannon trail up to kinsman ridge trail to get to the cannon observation tower. It had rained overnight, so frail was a bit slick and it was pretty woodsy for the first 1.5 miles, then some overlooks appeared.
