Lincoln New Hampshire sights and sounds of the Woods
I was disappointed to find the Flume Gorge was closed when I arrived for my weekly walk in the Woods. I took a path a little less traveled and hiked Mount Pemigewasset instead. Upon reaching the summit, I was able to get a far off view of Mount Flume. It is easy to pick out which peak is the Flume, the avalanche scar is noticeable where the slide occurred. Mount Flume- from Mount Pemigewasset 11/4/10.
A lot of surface and subsurface water follows this path of least resistance and is then channeled in to the Flume Gorge. The Board walk has been removed for the Winter, but you can still hike near the Gorge...just not in the Gorge (although the adventurous will wait for ice to form and practice their ice climbing skills here later in the winter).

Lincoln New Hampshire's land area is 95% National or State Forest Land preservation area, the remaining developed town area accounts for all the housing, commercial and recreational-business property including the Loon mountain Ski area. With so little to police, plow and maintain we are blessed to have one of the lowest tax burdens in the State. If you ever have the chance to hike the Flume gorge don’t pass it up.
The Basin and the Board Walk are two of the highlights…along with a covered bridge.
If you come to Lincoln New Hampshire to Ski, hike or just relax, don't be surprised if you don't want to leave.
