    We really enjoyed ourselves at this scenic spot and were excited to do what we thought was a small easy hike. As adults it would have been fabulous, but we had our difficult 4yr old with us which made...  more »

    Walked the entire loop taking our time along the way to rest and/or take photos. Well worth the trip to see the falls and beautiful surroundings.  more »

    The Flume Gorge is a great two to three hour experience. You'll have the opportunity see not only the gorge itself, but several other natural formations: Liberty Gorge, Sentinel Pine Covered Bridge, T...  more »

    There is a lot of walking. It's very steep in places, going up and down. The staircase is not wide enough to stop and enjoy the falls or the gorge, therfore you have to keep moving so you don't keep everyone behind you from moving. Once you get past the gorge and the falls, there's nothing else to do except look out over the valley. And walk a lot. The "one hour and fifteen minute" self-guided tour took three hours with six adults and seven kids, six of them between ages 2-8. If you are not used to hiking, like myself, you will be sore for a few days. I liked Lost River Gorge much better. More fun for the kids and less walking. And stairs! (Never thought I'd be excited about stairs.)

    I love this place! It does worth the entrance fee. If you can, try to walk the whole loop. It takes you an hour or two, if you stop here and there and take some awesome pictures.

    Not the easiest hike and my daughter needed to take a lot of breaks but just incredible views like we've never seen! Haven't seen a picture yet that does it justice! They have many benches and rain pavilions along the path to take breaks and a very nice visitor center. We took the long route and took our time to see flume gorge, liberty cascades, the pool overlooked by a covered wooden bridge and the "rock gardens". It was raining and it was still my favorite stop on our trip!

    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.

    Incredible natural phenomenon. The trail is well maintained and easy to navigate. Try to crawl through the wolf's den (if you can fit)
