We visited the Gorge when staying at Ludlow about an hour south. It was worth the visit as a day trip. There is not much happing in this part of the state in the summer so touring and hiking and nature are where it is at. The "hike" down is made very accessible from the visitors center which has very clean service, a nice little shop and a very friendly guide. The path is crushed gravel and you could almost take a wheel chair down to the bottom of the falls. No issue for anyone who can walk, limp or scoot. There are benches along the 1/2 mile walk in case anyone get's tired. Bring your bug spray!.

You can hike the trails or just walk out to the center of the bridge as we did, the view is just great.

Be sure to stop by the visitor center to pick up a map of the trails. From the visitor center, it is down, down, and more down. They thoughtfully put a bench for those that can't walk all the way to the bottom but want to rest before continuing or resting for those brave souls that do go all the way. The view from the bridge, both sides is breath-taking! Absolutely glad we visited.

Quechee Gorge is a must-see for people visiting this area. It's Vermont’s deepest gorge (165-feet down), formed by a glacier 13,000 years ago. You can stare all the way down from either side of the bridge on Route 4 in Quechee, and you can also walk down a fairly steep 4/10-mile trail alongside the gorge to the bottom of it, which sometimes has rocks above the water to sit and sun on (but lately they have been pretty well submerged by high water). There's a tent/RV campground very nearby, too. Back up on Route 4, next to the gorge, are a hot dog stand, a gift shop (with bathrooms), and a local wine seller with ongoing wine-tastings.

I visited the gorge area on a hot day after all the rain Vermont had. After parking the car at the large parking lot at the information center and walking the short 1000 feet to the bridge, as we approached the bridge the air temperature dramatically dropped and you could here the sound of the rushing water through the gorge. The trail along the gorge is a wide gravel covered with trees that is easy to walk but for some the return walk up the path to the parking area may be difficult since the path drops about 400 feet over the entire trail.
