Flume Gorge Parking Area - Search Nearby - Added by James Lynch

Flume Gorge is a beautiful little canyon located in the middle of Franconia Notch State Park. The waterfalls are a beautiful provide an excellent spectacle to walk around and photograph. 

Flume gorge is a wonderful place to spend a few hours exploring an amazing canyon in the heart of Franconia Notch State Park. The hike is rather easy on a nice summer day and provides amazing views. 

After paying the $16 entry fee, a shuttle swings around every 10 minutes to bring people to the foot of the trail. As you walk up, the trail winds along and across a river, up to some small cascades. 

Continuing along the wooded path takes you down into a long canyon filled with rushing water. The whole path makes for excellent photos.

After the gorge itself, you can either choose to take a longer hike or head back to the parking lot and finish the loop, either way, you won't be disappointed.
