This walk was not that muddy actually. Snow was still all around but the weather was literally 80+ degrees at the parking lot(record high that day). It was perfect. You could safely negotiate your way up to the spot where the boardwalk has been pulled for the winter. Getting around the visitor center took a little work but well worth... More

Even when it is hot out the shade from the trees, and the water makes it a great place for a walk in nature. Busy during the summer & fall.

Went with 2 boys aged 3 and 5. They were able to walk for most of the self guided tour as the path is smooth and easy to travel. Had a great morning hike.

We paid $16 each to visit here and had a lovely few hours climbing wooden stairway and watching the water crashing along below us - every level is more scenic as you go and breath taking to watch the force of the water. Great photo opportunities

A beautiful fall hike with rocks and leaves and water. Very New Hampshire. There were a lot of tourists there but it didn't feel bad. We were able to find our own little niche that made it special.

We went with another couple in the summer. The walk is uphill (assisted by a van partway if you'd like) and somewhere in the easy to moderate range. We're late middle age but managed it fine. Breathtaking views of water and rocks.

Our family loved the hike and beautiful views along the flume. Great nature views and a wonderful hike. The flume itself is breathtaking. It is a hike kids can do also!

Quite an adventure. A trek up the mountain right next to the flume. Beautiful views, a gorgeous covered bridge, several waterfalls, glacial boulders, rushing water, lots of moss... Worth walking up every step. Fee charged to enter. We enjoyed it very much.
