Flume from Liberty

     Mt. Flume is a spectacular mountain for several reasons.  It is the southernmost mountain in the stunning Franconia Range.  Its sisters on the Range - Mts. Liberty (4,459 ft.), Little Haystack (4,780 ft.), Lincoln (5,089 ft.), Lafayette (5,260 ft.), and Garfield (4,500 ft.) - lie prominently to the north.  Flume commands 360 views from its summit: to the north are the mountains of the Franconia Range (Little Haystack is blocked from view by Liberty), Loon to the south, the Pemigewasset Wilderness, Owl's Head, the Bonds, Bondcliff, and Washington to the east, and Moosilauke and the Kinsmans to the west.  The rock slide on Flume's western side (shown in the picture above) is its most notable landmark and makes the peak easy to identify from that direction.  Flume is one of the designated 48 Four Thousand Footers in New Hampshire as is its northern neighbor, Mt. Liberty, just 1.1 mile away.  Incidentally, a nice loop is formed when climbing Liberty and Flume together as a day hike using the Flume Slide and Liberty Spring Trails.  For more information on this hike, please click on the "Preplanned Hikes" link to the left.
