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.

Great roadside stop! Be careful crossing the road, and yes, you need to see the gorge from BOTH sides! Photos don't do justice!

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

Follow the signs and you will find a beautiful view. Some small hills but there is a different trail with no hills in it.

We were in VT for several days the beginning of October, spending a day in the Quechee Gorge area. What a beautiful place. We hit it when the fall colors were at peak, which made for a beautiful day to hike around. This is a great place to see the majesty of one of God's masterpieces.

It was raining so hiking was a little difficult; that makes it less pretty too. Fun to take pictures from the bridge though.

A visit in the fall was such a treat for the eyes. The hiking looks great but we didn't have time to stay. I would love to come back to this area so,eBay.
