I heard tell this is the Grand Canyon of Vermont. Well, it's pretty and a nice photo op, but maybe I missed the Grand Canyon part???? Heading out of Woodstock we parked in the areas of shops to the left after the bridge. Shops in that area have very reasonable priced souvenirs. We walked the trail to the dam overlook... More

In all honesty, we were a little disappointed after reading all the glowing reviews of the gorge. It is worth a look if you are in the area, but in our view, it is only moderately interesting. If you have seen a truly spectacular gorge like the Grand Canyon, the Royal Gorge, the New River Gorge, and the like, you... More

If you are in the area then take a walk down to the gorge. You won't be sorry. If you don't feel like hiking down then park in the lot right by the bridge and walk to the bridge and enjoy the gorge from above

We didn't walk down, but view from above was beautiful. Lovely town. Ate at the glass shop, fabulous menu. Watched a very talented young lady blow and make a water glass. Went to the nature center, our grandson loved it.

Walked to the bottom of the gorge. Pretty easy walk going down, but there were a few mildly steep inclines going back up, however there are benches along the path. Worth the walk!

We were staying at the nearby Quechee inn and hiked from there to the gorge. You pass a nice waterfall along the way. The hike down to the gorge is very nice and not hard at all. The view from up top on the Rt 4 bridge is quite spectacular as well.

The Quechee Gorge is a river that has cut through a section of land just west of White River Junction, VT. The venue consists of parking and a gift shop along route 4 and then a walk down a series of stairs until you are well below the road. You look up at the sheer cliffs on either side of... More
