This place is beautiful. Stunning views, make sure you check out both sides. There is a visitor center and an adorable gift shop. Absolutely worth the stop if you are driving through!

A pleasant hike , very scenic area, moderately steep walk back but there's a couple of benches along the way to rest for those that might need it. Very scenic area. Nice little swimming area at the bottom but wear your swim suit since there's no changing area. A lot of hiking trails in the area. Also some touristy shops... More

The view into the gorge is nice from the bridge and is probably best in the Fall, but it is nothing to go out of the way for. The Flume in New Hampshire is much better.

I have driven over Quechee Gorge many many times, but this August had a chance to hike down in. It was a great experience and we had a beautiful day a great picture taking. The only bummer was that we did not take our bathing suits. We hiked into the south end of the Gorge, and there were several people... More

This was a fun excursion and very close to Woodstock ( 6 miles ) , reaching the bottom is fairly simple and quick ; once on the bottom you will be amazed by nature's awesomeness. There are also a number of covered bridges that were fun to view and photograph.

It was really, really far down. There are nice short hiking trails off the gift shop and the information centre. There is a very nice picnic ground as well.

Quechee Gorge is a delightful place for a day trip (from Jaffrey, NH) or a longer trip (3 1/2 hours) from Boston. Beautiful scenery, an easy hike, and cold water to dip in. Stop at Kin Arthur's Flour on the return for a delicious lunch.

What a great place to stay or just have an enjoyable break. The scenery is outstanding and the shopping complex is small and relaxed. Good place to sample Vermont's Cabot cheeses and good selection of mountain coffees. Antiques and toy collectors will amuse themselves for hours here. Ice cream to cool you down and fresh fudge by the pound. KOA... More

Breathtaking views. Not exactly the "Grand Canyon", but rather a uniquely New England landscape that will make you weak in the knees.
