The flume cover

Our first day in Franconia Notch, started at the Flume Gorge. It is in a state park with a lot of interesting smaller waterfalls, rock formations, covered bridges, and other natural attractions to view. We actually made the hike a bit more difficult by ignoring the sign indicating the path to the Flume to follow another map which took us the back way into the Flume Gorge which ended up being a more difficult climb. My advice – stick to the trail signs! You can take a self-guided tour which they indicate takes 1 1/4 hours but it will be longer since you will stop to view the beautiful scenery. Another option is to take the bus to the flume gorge but you will still need to walk up a lot of winding stairs to view the gorge. If you have health problems you may not want to visit the Flume Gorge. This is not a simple walk around flowing water. We spent a couple of hours and enjoyed every minute – except for the more difficult hike we took. Luckily they have a cafeteria and when we were done with our tour we had our lunch there. It is a beautiful place to visit. There is a small charge, which is worth the money. As with many state parks, NH does not provide funding and they need to find ways to raise revenue.
