A visit in the fall was such a treat for the eyes. The hiking looks great but we didn't have time to stay. I would love to come back to this area so,eBay.

A truly majestic and beautiful gorge. Great to hike although we did not . The fall view was amazing and right next to the country store as well, worth the stop any season has a majestic view.

Nice area to go down the gorge, then up to the falls. Some photo opportunities to take shots from the bridge. Worth a trip out to have a look.

Located right on Route 4 in Quechee. This unusual natural phenomenon was created when the Ottaquechee river cut through along what must have been a fault in the mountain. The gorge is straight as an arrow and can be reached by a half mile trail from the Quechee Gorge Visitor Center on Rr. 4. The trail is well maintained and... More

There are several businesses along the edge of this Vermont natural wonder, and their parking lot serves as a jumping-off place for viewing the gorge. They seem to welcome tourists, with available restrooms and an outdoor serving window for quick meals and snacks. The gorge itself can be seen from protected pedestrian walkways on each side of the highway bridge... More

Can take a minute or a day overlooking the gorge. Bring your camera so you can enjoy this wonder after you go home.

It was raining a little when we stopped at the gorge, but nothing could take away the breathtaking view! There was still some beautiful colors on the trees to make it even better. Well worth the drive to see!

Good place for a short walk beside the gorge thru pretty trees - 0.4 miles one way - down hill then back up. Interesting views of the road bridge over the gorge on the way. The rocks beside the river at the bottom of the path are pretty uneven so wear your walking shoes or boots.

We were here at peak Fall color, and it was incredible! The walk on the trail to the visitors center was so pretty and the air smelled so clean! There is a steeper walk which I did not take, but others in my party did and their photos of the dam were beautiful. Later in the day, we were crossing... More
