Stopped to see the river on our way to Woodside from White River Junction. It was breathtaking with the Fall foilage along either side of the gorge! As luck would have it a beautiful hot air balloon sailed over the river and gorge, while we were there, which made it a perfect camera moment! Worth the stop.

The river runs through the town of Woodstock. The colors of autumn is on display along its shores. The old wooden covered bridge over the river is so quaint.

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.
