You can walk down the pathway along the Ottoquechee River a short distance and when you have climbed back up the path you can enjoy a nice ice cream cone at the ice cream stand just across Route 4 from the trail, or you could just walk a short distance to a little restaurant and maybe enjoy a great breakfast at Dana's by the gorge. there is a gift shop and tourist info booth nearby. If you want you can even set up a tent at the Quechee state park or stay at the hotel which is also close by. There use to be a mini-golf behind the pizza place, all of this is within walking distance to each other and there is loads more just by driving a mile away going both East or West to find more palces to shop or play golf or what ever you might enjoy in this small area.
