The hiking trails into the gorge are beautiful and magnificent as you descend into the gorge about 165 feet from the top

The most visited outdoor, natural attraction in Vermont! Beautiful trails surround this natural phenomenon. And a great picture opportunity.

This is a nice hike to a beautiful gorge. It is so peaceful and the water so pure it calls you to come in. I did just that-however there is a current that can sweep you away so be cautious of that. The gorge is surrounded by trees and plant life so you feel like you are in a forest.... More

This gorge is located on route 4 between Quechee and Woodstock. You must park on either side of the bridge and walk out on it to see the Gorge. Nice view. No charge.

Plenty of parking and a very short walk to a very beautiful attraction! It reminded me of certain parts of Yellowstone National Park. It doesn't take long to see, but it's definitely worth hopping out of the car to take a look if you love seeing beautiful scenery!

Really great access to see the gorge! Very beautiful, a must stop when traveling through Quechee! There is also a place to eat and shop right at the viewing bridge

Gorge was the first thing I went to. It was very nice. Not so extreme but, very nice view along with some power walking and hiking.

The views of the Gorge are mesmerizing. The history of the Gorge is so interesting. There is a trail that you can walk down alongside the Gorge to the bottom; it's 165 feet deep. The trail is pretty steep so not for the weak of knees. The exercise on the return back up is a great cardio workout! This is... More

I'm sad to say the hike down wasn't really worth it, because I love the outdoors and would like to encourage everyone to take a hike. However, we found it kind of "blah" when we got down there. We ended our hike up at the road on the bridge, and that's when we said "wow!" The view was much nicer... More

The wooded nature trail is a nice hike but the gorge cannot be vied because of the vegetation. Best to view the gorge from the highway bridge which can be reached from the parking lot without taking the nature trail.
