Based on the recommendation from the visitor center staff, we walked part of trail up to the dam to view it. Despite the mile walk, it had various elements as we winded our way through the forest trails, over the pine needles, up along the river, under the bridge, and to the dam itself. A moderate hike and a great... More

It's a wonderful place to walk. We've visited in summer, when the trees are lovely with a thousand shades of green. Our kids waded into a pool in the river and swam. Then in Winter the landscape is more open and bare. There's a visitor center with warm drinks (in Winter), free cookies, and very nice volunteers (year-round).

If your anywhere near Quechee, VT you must stop and see the Gorge. It will only take you about an hour to walk the entire gorge, but it is well worth it.

Nice trail, quiet, serene, beautiful. When connecting with nature this is the type of place you want to be. Close to the hotel, but not traffic noisy.

A nice place for an easy hike and get some wonderful photos! Spring, winter, summer or fall, it is a special place to spend a relaxing time! Nice easy walking trail, plenty of parking. Right on the highway at bridge.

After years of driving by, my wife and I finally stopped, went on a nice fairly level hike up river along a pond past the hydro - electric dam, I'm sure it's a great place to view waterfowl in warmer weather, although there were no birds anywhere to be seen mid-April. Nice view of dam and waterfalls, then back to... More

This is a nice place to stop during the summer months. You can take an easy hike to the bottom of the gorge right from the visitor's center. Wear your swim suit so you can take a dip in the river during the hot summer days. Dana's by the Gorge is a great place for breakfast and lunch!

I have been to Quechee Gorge several times, but never before had I decided to take the hike down to the bottom of the Gorge. I needed some time to think, and thought the walk would do me good. I asked in the store just before the Gorge Bridge, bought a walking stick and changed clothes, because I was told... More
