  • Visited in October, so water flow was at minimum, but the views of the gorge were still awsome. Another interesting feature of the walk are the huge glacial boulders entwined with pine tree roots. Bes...  more »

  • Beautiful even in the winter. Trails are more closed off and naturally more dangerous in winter. However there is still people making their way through. In the summer this is hugely popular and full of traffic. A great natural formation and beauty. There is an entry cost during the season
  • It is located in Lincoln, NH. We visited in summer 2017. We followed trail or should say go upstream the river. The water is very clear but cold like spring water. On the way upstream of the river, the view from water flowing through the rocky surface and the wind from the forest skinning the mountain spring had swiped summer heat away. Minutes later we were on a long narrow bridge along the river channel in the rocky mountain. A loud roar from a distance excited us to swim through chilly and damper wind. A series of heady and light waterfalls displayed in front of us. That was fun. Summer is good time to visit but avoid raining day for the flood warning.
  • We had a wonderful time hiking through the Gorge, it is a very long walk that you can mostly take at your own pace, there are some narrow spots where you would be in the way of people trying to watch. The views are stunning. I cannot wait to go back.
  • I love coming here - over the years - when I am in the area -I often make a detour and save a few hours so that I can go to The Flume. There are two ways to hike it - one easier than the other - walking along the walkways - in the high granite walls of the George - the water rushing below - - very different and refreshing. I always feel in awe of nature when I am at the Flume - I have taken a number of people to the Flume - and everyone enjoys it - - the planet's geography is so alive here - -
  • Love this spot. Little walk but enjoyed a lot. Steps are too narrow to walk with kids. But I strongly recommend a visit to this historic place
