Reviewed 23 August 2014

Quechee gorge is downright beautiful. It's easy to access by road or trail. There are plenty of parking options for people to either take a hike through the woods to get to the gorge, or to pull right up to it. You walk over a bridge to see the gorge + it's exhilarating. ((Warning for those with fear of heights: the bridge does "bounce" a bit when trucks roll over it)). Breathtaking views + a must see!

Simply Beautiful! I loved stopping here. You can park and walk out on the bridge and take in the beautiful views of the Gorge which is 163 feet down! Not for those afraid of heights probably. But, you can hike down the 1 to 1 1/2 mile trail and get to the bottom and take in the scenery that way. I have a sore foot and found that this was an easy hike down. It is slow and easy decline. it is gravel but on either side is pine needles to soften the walk. (the walk back up will take some time though) There is also a fence on the right side which I used quite a bit but that gave me a chance to stop several times on the way down to get amazing photos. If you do take the hike down, I advise you take some towels down with you becaue you can't help but get in the water once you see it. Or even wear a bathing suit. Everyone I was with ended up in the water. It was fun to watch!! I don't know if I would take little ones in the main area because the current is pretty swift! There are little pools of water around that are more calm for little ones. The water was COLD! But this was the clearest water I have ever seen. Would like to see it in the spring because I am sure the water is high and fast....

We love the views from the bridge and the hike down is nice, little more work getting out... Well maintained trail and a few well placed benches. We were commenting that if this was NH there would most likely be a $15 fee to get in and walk around. Nice visitor center. Worth the stop if you are in the area.

Wandering the roadways of Quechee we knew we had stumbled upon the Gorge when we spotted all the people leaning from the bridge. This is absolutely worth getting out of the car to photograph. It is a beautiful scene.

The gorge is gorgeous! Hike down or just look from the bridge. Beautiful spot. We spent a while here, just taking it in.
