Actually, this is just a pleasant scramble down a well-worn trail with some interesting geology and plant life. Can be done within an hour and a nice break from driving. I suspect that it could get very crowded if you are there at the wrong time but we picked a very grey day close to sunset and it was a... More

Stunning gorge! :) There is plenty of parking and good sidewalks around the bridge. There aren't good sidewalks from the parking to the bridge, strangely. There are also some nice, easy paths along the river.

We hiked to the bottom of the gorge and were impressed with the beautiful views. Also walked across the bridge to see it from above.

We visited Quechee Gorge on a family camping trip through Vermont. There are swimming holes at the bottom and our children had a wonderful time. Don't forget you swim suit.

Quechee Gorge is a nice place to go hike around on very easy, well-maintained trails. There are great shops nearby and the sites from the bridge are amazing. Highly recommended for anyone who likes to spend any amounts of time outdoors.

We took a day trip from Massachusetts and really enjoyed the gorge --the view was beautiful and the short walk in either direction provided a look from above and below--very nice even in the rain

My dad and I went to Quechee Gorge when we were in the area. The man at the Welcome Center was very friendly and told us about the trails and what we should see. We hiked it all which took about an hour or so. You can go to the bottom of the gorge which is quite beautiful and you... More
