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 Hartford day trip planning app .

    Picturesque and simple hike along the gorge with nice view spots for the dam. Great spots to take some pictures as well, worth it to check out the gift shop as well.  more »
