Quechee Gorge, Quechee

4.5
#1 of 76 in Nature in Vermont
Dubbed "Vermont's Little Grand Canyon," Quechee Gorge features hikes down into the canyon or up to the bordering waterfalls for views of the surrounding area. Fish and canoe in the river, hike one of the marked trails, and go cross-country skiing or snowshoeing in the winter. You'll have the option to cross the gorge using the suspension bridge or use the pedestrian walkways on both sides. Take time to climb along the boulders beside the river at the bottom of the path. Be sure to wear walking shoes or boots since the rocks can be uneven and slippery.

  • Great for a short but somewhat challenging hike. Going down the gorge is easy, coming back up is a different story! The gorge itself is very scenic, especially during the Fall with all of the changing leaves. Parking is very easy. There is a bathroom in the visitor center but there is also one in the little store at the top of the gorge, but they prefer you be a customer in order to use it.
  • A nice little hike down to the river bed. Interesting geology and history. Is smaller-shorter than appears from the bridge. Worthwhile visit from Woodstock VT.
