A beautiful walk down to the river, and in July this was a family playground. There is cool, clean, refreshing water of all depths and flows to play in. I wish we had known more. Bring shoes that you can wear in the water, because...More

There is a place along Route 4 that a visitor just needs to take a minute, stop, and gasp in awe--just before taking a picture. This is the Quechee Gorge. This is an absolute "must" for the photo to match all photos. PS Not far...More

We stumbled on the gorge on our way to another destination. We stopped and viewed the gorge from the bridge - great view - beautiful scenery. There were also signs for hiking trails, but we didn’t have time to check them out.

There are lots of sights to see in Vermont but if you are in area don't miss the Quechee Gorge. There are dramatic views from the bridge and, downstream, rocks to clamber over (when the river isn't in flood!). We didn't have children with us...More

The trail from the visitors center is the prettiest. The trail alon the gorge is lined with chain link fence. The gorge is worth stopping to take a look at, but it’s not much of a hike.

This is a beautiful place to visit. You can hike down the bottom of the gorge relatively easily. Of course going back up is a bit more difficult but shouldn't be a problem for most people.

Not a real comparison but they have a good press agent! Actually a very impressive sight - there is a road/trail to the bottom that is relatively easy in good weather. A great photo op - especially in the Fall and Winter. A must see...More
