Gorgeous natural attraction. You can take a moderate hike to the bottom or stroll the bridge. Something for everyone

We enjoyed a return visit to this gorge on a return trip to the Northeast. The weather was perfect which made walking around and seeing the gorge a very pleasant time. We had lunch at the shop/restaurant and enjoyed the simple but delicious food. The shop had some nice souvenirs and we were happy to buy Vermont Maple Syrup for... More

We went to the gorge on a cloudy misty day and we still enjoyed the walk up to the dam, We went out on the peninsular and you could see all of the birds nesting and flying around. If you go make sure you bring your binoculars. Next time we are going to walk down to the bottom

It is not much of a gorge. The walk to the bottom is pretty, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see this.

You can walk down to the bottom of the gorge as well as walk to the other end where the water runs down. The fact that it is free, makes it more enjoyable.

It was a bit rainy the day I visited Quechee Gorge, so I didn't do any walking along the paths. I did view the gorge atop the bridge. It was a nice view. It's near places to eat, the visitor's center, and some souvenier shops. It's worth a quick visit if in the area.

The Quechee Gorge is not the biggest geologic feature in the states but it is well worth the time to stop and either walk the bridge or take the trail to the bottom. They have kept the gorge pristine without the usual commercial interventions so you get a great feel for the Green Mountains. Shops abound in the environs for... More

We passed this place in our trip towards the Adirondacks. Let me tell you, breathtaking doesn't describe it!!! The overpass in route 4 let you see it from above, with a hiking trail to the sides, you can stop there and take fotos, ask yourself and other onlookers what it will be to jump from there, eat at one of...

It was a short hike and a pleasant diversion while we were driving to New Hampshire but the gorge is really not that big a deal. There are much better scenery in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. There a bunch of tourist shops around the gorge, which is rather small. Shepard's Pie restaurant near the gorge was great.
