Flume gorge had some of the most incredible views of a natural flume. Path ways were clean, marked well. Moderate walk getting to the top, but saw women in high heels walking the trail, don't know how. If you can't walk well or you are...More

Drove the 8 miles of highway 93 through Franconia Notch State Park. The view was breathtaking. Will return again and check out the other attractions in the park. Beautiful and highly recommended.

Be sure and take lots of time to climb The Flume and so hike any and all waterfalls in the area. Fall is definitely the time to visit!

Spent a few hours here, great place to relax and get back to nature, with spectacular views. We did as a couple but saw lots of families enjoying the area.

We went to the Basin and to Echo Lake in the State Park this trip, but have been to the Flume in past visits. Love it here! The Colors were incredible. We especially enjoyed hiking up Bald Mountain and the overlook called "Artists Bluff."

The profile plaza provides opportunities to see how the mountain looked like before the collapse. Only regret coming too late, for the first time.

My husband and I enjoyed a number of hikes in this beautiful park. A favorite was Artist's Bluff which climbed up to a gorgeous view over the mountain valley.
