We've been here numerous times. It's a great place to visit during high water. It realy roars through the gorge. You do have to watch people crossing the street to each side. Hate to call them morons, but didn't your mothers ever tell you to look both ways before just walking into traffic. I know there's crosswalks, but God, pay... More

The hike down to the bottom of the Gorge isn't too bad. But once you get down and want to look up towards the bridge you do have to climb on to a pretty tough terrain of rocks.

The visitor center is the place to start. The person at the counter did a good job of explaining the trails and he made good suggestions on where to start and which directions to go in. The hiking can be steep to the bottom of the gorge, but the trail is more like a gravel road and is easy to... More

Unbelievable the scenery. Nice hike down to the bottom of the gorge. All the locals and tourists jump right in the water and swim. My daughter loved the swim in the river.

Such a pretty view from the bridge - and a short hike is a bonus if you have time on a nice day. Gift shop and snack shop at top are decent and there are other little shops and eateries nearby. Wouldn't go out of my way for it, but nice to pause at if you are going by. The... More

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
