#1 of 17 in Things to do in Quechee
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. Put Quechee Gorge on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Quechee day trip planning app.

  • We hike both sides of the Gorge and had a great time along the trail. The views along the trail were great, but the best views are from atop the bridge. The hike was a good way to spend the morning....  more »
  • Nice place to stop but to be honest a bit over rated. Stop in the car park, walk across bridge and take a few photos. Twenty mins max! Few restaurants at car park and the food looked really good.  more »
  • Nice little stop while passing through town. You can view the gorge from the bridge or you can take a couple different hikes to see more.  more »

  • Very scenic with gift shop and a great food shack
  • Great area. Bring some snacks and you can spend hours down at the bottom in the water.
  • The gorge is 165 feet below the bridge. Small rectangles cut in the fence along the bridge side to take your photos yet keep anyone from falling/jumping over. It’s a hike to the bottom and the hike back up may be too challenging for some.
  • 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.
  • BEAUTIFUL experience. I hope I make it back someday!
