We were at the white mountains for a week and the Flume Gorge was on our to-do list. It was a rainy day but we still headed out.
The Flume Gorge is a natural gorge of 800 feet, that extends from the base of Mount Liberty. The walls rise to about 90 feet and are 12-20 feet apart.

It is a two-mile hike amidst spectacular views that’s starts at the visitors center. There are a lot of amazing views at Flume Gorge that keep your mind away from the fact that you are hiking. There is an admittance fee of $16 per adult.
A grandiose of 19th-century ingenuity, the covered bridge is a historical site for tourist and one of the few wooden bridges still standing.

At this point, we could tell we were approaching a waterfall because we literally walked into a mist. It was magical. I felt like a child again as I was overjoyed.
There is a bear cave along the way as we continued our hike towards THE POOL.
I didn’t get any closer to the cave because I just didn’t want, not with the recent happenings involving caves.
The scenic pool sits in a deep basin of the Pemigawasset river. The trail goes around the pool so you can view it from different angles. It is breathtaking.
The pool was my most favorite. I wished I could jump in just to get the temperature of the water.
It was an exciting adventure and though seemed strenuous, I didn’t get tired because I was consumed by its beauty. I initially thought it was overpriced but it was absolutely worth it.
Come enjoy the beauty of New England!!
