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

This is known as the Grand Canyon of Vermont. However, if you have seen the real thing, there is no comparison. Worth a visit, if you are in the area, especially if you take the time to hike down to the bottom. But watch the markers on the trees carefully, as it is easy to miss a turn-off. I often... More

We've hiked down in to the gorge a number of times with friends and family. One should be in at least average shape. Even in the summer, the river is very cold but a lot of fun. Views from the bridge are marvelous.

Beautiful walk across the snow covered field. Good winter walking gear a must. Bring your camera, you never know what nature has in store

This stunning place with its gorgeous views and wonderful photo ops, is worth every minute you spend to drive here. I only wish I were close enough to visit each season! I was there early summer and it was fabulous! Take your camera and allow time.

Even though the trail is somewhat slick and slippery in the winter, this is a beautiful gorge! With the snow-covered trees, ice-sculpted river below and fresh air, what a beautiful stop along the way. Take some good hiking boots. If you have snowshoes, all the better! Best view is from the bridge that can be accessed from the road. (Don't... More

Vermont has always been one of my favorite get aways. This is one of those places that has to be experienced. Especially if you love nature.

A must scenic see in the area but the view is literally off a fairly busy road with traffic. with snow/ice piled up on the sides there was little to no room to stand on the shoulders and nothing to hold on to. be careful, watch for cars and good luck keeping your balance trying to take pictures!!
