Mount Flume is a peak in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, in the United States. The mountain overlooks Franconia Notch. It is 4,328 feet (1,319 m) tall and is accessible from the north by the Franconia Ridge Trail, from the southeast by the Osseo Trail, and from the west by the Flume Slide Trail to the Franconia Ridge Trail.

From the summit there are outstanding views to the west and to the north to Franconia Ridge. The Flume Slide Trail is a notably steep and slippery climb and is not recommended in wet weather or snow, nor as a descending trail under any conditions.
