Flume Gorge, located in Franconia Notch State Park in New Hampshire, is a natural wonder that captivates visitors with its stunning beauty and geological significance. This natural gorge extends 800 feet at the base of Mount Liberty and is known for its dramatic granite walls, which rise to heights of 70 to 90 feet and are separated by a mere 12 to 20 feet. The gorge was discovered in 1808 by 93-year-old "Aunt" Jess Guernsey while she was fishing.

Visitors can explore Flume Gorge via a 2-mile loop trail, which offers a mix of boardwalks and forested paths, providing a close-up view of the gorge's striking features. Along the trail, you'll encounter several notable landmarks, including Avalanche Falls, a 45-foot waterfall that cascades into the gorge, and Liberty Gorge, a picturesque waterfall and pool. Other highlights include Table Rock, a large flat granite formation, and Sentinel Pine Bridge, a charming covered bridge that spans the Pemigewasset River.

The gorge is open seasonally from May to October, as winter conditions make the area inaccessible. It's recommended to wear sturdy footwear due to the sometimes slippery and uneven terrain. The visitor center at the entrance offers educational exhibits and information about the gorge's formation, flora, and fauna. Whether you're an avid hiker or simply looking for a scenic adventure, Flume Gorge provides an unforgettable experience with its blend of natural beauty and geological history.
