When you are in central Vermont, be sure to stop and visit the Quechee Gorge. You can view it by an overlook bridge or if you have time, by a short footpath that follows the river. The fall foliage provided plenty of photo opportunities when we visited although the gorge is just as beautiful during the summer. There is also... More

Quechee Gorge is very scenic from both the bridge overlook and the short, easy hiking path. At the end of the path you can go out onto the rocks in the water, if it is shallow, but recommend using caution for this. There are a few restaurants and a souvenir store nearby.

There is a short walk from the well appointed visitor center down to the bottom of the gorge (.4 miles) but it is fairly steep at times. The gorge is beautiful but not large. It's a nice diversion to stretch your legs if you're in the area but not worth a special trip. Plan about an hour.

The weather was overcast and gloomy but the gorge still looked beautiful and was well worth a visit. The waters were low and the autumn fall colour was about 10 days away but it was still very scenic - I can only imagine how impressive the gorge would be in full torrent with autumn colours or in glorious sunshine or...

Not much of a gorge, but then I live 30 minutes from the Columbia River Gorge, you can't find anyplace more beautiful than that!

It was raining and cold but the view was worth it. Get out of the car and enjoy the sights. This is Mother Nature at her best. A hidden treasure. There is a gift shop nearby that has a variety of things from magnets to clothing and they have a bathroom. The employees are wonderful.

We stayed in Quechee and were on our way out when we were about to cross it. We jumped out and went to look over the edge. It is a long ways down and has great view of the river below. We didn't have time but did notice walking trails next to the bridge. I am sure during the spring... More
