The Flume Gorge

A stunning natural wonder in Franconia Notch State Park

Discovered in 1808, it will leave you spellbound as you stroll the path from the main walkway through the Flume Gorge and Liberty Gorge. The Flume is a natural granite gorge extending 800 feet at the base of Mount Liberty. The total path is 2 miles in length and takes approximately 1.5 hours. You'll see towering moss-covered granite walls rising to a spectacular height of 90 feet, cascading waterfalls, historic covered bridges, glacial pools & boulders and much more.

The Flume Gorge Trail is now ONE-WAY ONLY with the only option being to walk the entire loop in one direction. The Flume building is open to the public for retail/food/beverage. See Summer 2021 Modified Operating Rules
