Years ago,someone knew a good thing when they saw it and beat us to The Flume with a visitor center, shuttle bus, graded path, and admission charge. I admit it! This hike is really a tourist attraction, and a few hard-core hikers may avoid The Flume on principle.
Most of us, though, should not be deterred from enjoying the unique experience of this ideal family stroll. Rising above the valley on the opposite side of the river, Mount Liberty and Mount Flume give a grand welcome to this Franconia Notch attraction. Special attractions: The Flume, The Pool, Avalanche Falls, and the sparkling Pemigewasset River.
