A nice walking trail next to the Gorge makes it easy to get to the bottom where you can jump in the (cold) water! On the other end of the walk, is a beautiful field with great scenery. Lots of dogs out when we were there! The view from the bridge is beautiful.

Love the Quechee Gorge -- only 6 miles from our house so we usually go every day that we can. From the visitor's center you go down some steps and along a nice path. You come to a sign and can go left down the hill or a right takes you to the dam. You pass the dam and Deweys... More

Quechee gorge is downright beautiful. It's easy to access by road or trail. There are plenty of parking options for people to either take a hike through the woods to get to the gorge, or to pull right up to it. You walk over a bridge to see the gorge + it's exhilarating. ((Warning for those with fear of heights:... More

Simply Beautiful! I loved stopping here. You can park and walk out on the bridge and take in the beautiful views of the Gorge which is 163 feet down! Not for those afraid of heights probably. But, you can hike down the 1 to 1 1/2 mile trail and get to the bottom and take in the scenery that way.... More

We love the views from the bridge and the hike down is nice, little more work getting out... Well maintained trail and a few well placed benches. We were commenting that if this was NH there would most likely be a $15 fee to get in and walk around. Nice visitor center. Worth the stop if you are in the... More

Wandering the roadways of Quechee we knew we had stumbled upon the Gorge when we spotted all the people leaning from the bridge. This is absolutely worth getting out of the car to photograph. It is a beautiful scene.

The gorge is gorgeous! Hike down or just look from the bridge. Beautiful spot. We spent a while here, just taking it in.
