Owner description: An 800-foot gorge that extends from the base of Mount Liberty. It is open from May 8 - October 25.
Reviewed 16 October 2017

Lots of steps and steep incline. I believe it was .7 miles to flume gorge and then 1.2 around to the entrance. Quite an enjoyable hike with more to see than just the flume gorge..a couple covered bridges and wonderful scenery.

I'm not saying it's one star. I'm saying I had a one star experience. Made the asinine decision to try to go there Columbus Day weekend. Never saw a parking lot like that. Was very creative in getting a spot, but then noticed the line just to get in was insane. We left and never made it in.

There is a fee for the hike but it is very pretty. A bus will take you part of the way if you prefer and it leaves directly behind the visitor center about every 10 minutes. There is a hike involved up and down so wear good shoes. The terrain is easily traversed though. Just some gradient.

During peak fall colors, go at opening time at 830am, to avoid the crowds and tour buses

Skip the aerial tram with the fee (just the flume) and take the cog rail instead.

Take water along, it's a good hike. Some steep sections, so wear shoes with traction.

We skipped the botany (info on plants), headed straight to the gorge. Took in the history and geology.

2 covered bridges were charming. Waterfalls were strong. Trees were lush with color. Open clearing of the mountains. Lots of photo opportunities.

Worth the cost, well maintained and remarkable. Walk thru the gorge and along a trail with lots of trees and nature
