  • Great, natural place for families. Kids loved it!!! It was nice to see them truly enjoy something that didn't need electricity and a lot less expensive than the local theme parks or other attractions. Was a little nerve-wracking in some parts of the walk on stairs over the gorge.
  • Fantastic! I want to do more hiking, so when I come back the hike will be easier, but I loved it none the less. The rock formations are un-believable, and the crasching waterfalls will use up you camera's memory. We saw plenty of adults with children and I think (as long as the adults are in good shape) it must be a wonderful hike for young minds and bodies. It is 2 miles with considerable uphill and quite a few stairs at the top.
  • A wonderfully run state park in a spectacular location. The Flume visitor center has public restrooms, gift shop and a cafe with prepared foods and drinks. In addition to the flume itself, the trail head to the Franconia Notch Recreation path which is awesome for biking and walking.
  • Lovely place for a short hike. Most of the place is paved, so it makes it very easy. Despite being easy, this is very beautiful.
  • This is a great little hike that is family friendly. Being a local we take many guests here who love and enjoy this hike.
