Viewed from the bridge then decided to hike down to the bottom of gorge, Nice wide and well maintained gravel path about 1/2 mile down to bottom. Took a cooling dip at bottom. Hike back up a little tougher but well worth the effort.

We visit three times, morning, noon and evening, and it is always breathtaking. Cannot wait to visit again in the fall.

With an incredible view from either side of the bridge, Quechee Gorge is a perfect ten minute stop on your way to or from the mountains.

The best views are from bridge itself. We did walk down to river but unless you re going swimming just average river which you are unable to see during your hike down

My husband and I have stopped here in the past to look over the bridge. We decided to walk around this time. We walked down the trails along the gorge. Walking to the bottom was worth the 10 minutes. You are able to walk out onto the rocks and wade in small areas of water, they are shallow so you... More

Fantastic views of the gorge. Try to park on the side where there are some shops. Be careful crossing the road.

Not the most impressive gorge we have seen but a nice view none the less. It can be seen along the hiking trails which are nice

We viewed from bridge down into gorge, but you can hike down and there's even a swimming hole. Not sure about taking little ones down. We only saw teens and above. There's a visitor center that you can check out for details.

We walked on one side of the road and then down the other side to see both ends of the gorge and river. It was beautiful with fog rolling in.

You must experience the gorge by both viewing it from above from the Rt. 4 bridge and then walk down on the path from the visitor's center to view the gorge from below. Its an easy walk down, but remember you have to walk back up at a steady grade and if you are elderly or out of shape, it... More
