Worth stopping

Great place to stop. Trails are easy the gorge is worth the short walk to the top and bottom of the gorge.

We drive through Quechee when heading back to Boston. We stopped off, had a look at the view from the road and then walked down to the gorge up close. The views are great and the walk was really pretty. If we had more time a hike might have been nice to spend longer in the area. Our stop was... More

We happened upon this gorge by accident as we were lost in Vermont. Great view of the gorge from the road, and even at my old age the trail down was pretty easy, and I had a good workout coming back up. Great way to stretch the legs! I'm glad we got lost in Vermont, what a beautiful state!

Walked through the visitor center and out the trail in the back. Walking trails are well kept and easy to walk. Views from both sides of the bridge are amazing.

Awesome hike down to the gorge. Expect to take a couple hours, wear appropriate shoes/boots. Also expect to relax at the bottom...some people were messing around in the water...need to be careful with the current. We even saw two guys fishing...not certain if that was legal so read up on the laws if you are a fisherman. Have a blast... More

Beautiful view of the gorge and mountains from the bridge. Take the short walk down to the gorge to dip your toes in and see the bridge from the gorge.

This is my second time visiting Quechee Gorge and I love it every time I visit. The view is a little unbelievable from the bridge just because of the height that you are away from the ground. Don't go on the bridge if you are scared of heights!

The trail to go down was safe. Unfortunately when we reached the bottom of the gorge, water was not plentiful, to our disappointment. The staff at the visitor center were very knowledgeable and helpful. Sorry to say that this gorge pales in comparison to the other gorges we have seen. But to go down was a good exercise.

This natural beauty is along Hwy 4 in Vermont. A nice little gift shop is close by. Also a snack shop. You can take a trail down to the gorge without paying any admission. Also the little shop is relatively inexpensive when compared to other shops in the area.

It was breathtakingly beautiful, there was a spot to park in on both sides of the highway. There was also a clear walkway on either side for you to walk on and overlook the gorge.
