It's a river that welcomes people to park the car on the road and jump in! If you don't see any easy access to the river, keep driving and you'll definitely find one!

Beautiful scenic river. View it from the covered bridge in Woodstock or from Quechee Gorge. Another lovely place to view the river is from the backyard of the Woodstock Historical Society.

This scenic gorge is beautiful in the rain, snow or sunshine. Watch for traffic while viewing the river from the bridge. A small shopping and antique store nearby completes the visit.

We followed this river for many miles and were delighted by its tranquillity as it passed through Woodstock and the neighbouring towns. We were especially fascinated by all the covered bridges; Taftsville etc, many of which were damaged in 2011 by Huricane Irene in 2011, but which have now been faithfully restored. A lovely, very attractive area.

There's something about the Ottaquechee River that gets under your skin - it is so merry, it skips and dances over the stones. You can drive along it for beautiful mile after beautiful mile. We just loved it to bits.

After a couple year hiatus, my daughter and I visited our favorite flyfishing spots on the Ottaquechee. While still scenic from a distance, major storms and other factors have apparently taken their toll. The riparian zones seem bare, sediment covers the river bed and has greatly diminished insect activity. It feels like one is wading in a drainage ditch. Really... More

Great views of the gorge from the bridge and from the base of the gorge. Great antiques mall and toy museum. Vermont Spirits is also a must see.

The kids were delighted to get their toes wet as they explored the river behind the Long Trail Brewery. Crystal clean and clear, butterflies and dragon flies and all the natural wonders were there for our splashing, wild appreciation!

The gorge is interesting, and it is good for a half-hour walk in and out. Nothing extra-ordinary but adds to the pleasure of visiting the Woodstock area.
