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 .

  • I love this place, it's like a New England version of a mini Grand Canyon. Yes, it's nowhere near that scale but it's a fun Roadtrip to Vermont, lots of antique shops, quaint, charming towns & beautiful mountains.
  • Great place for autumn Colours and to hear/feel the river running. Not sure about outside autumn. Though why would anyone be here outside of autumn?
  • It's a nice place for hike lovers but a very short but steep hike.
  • A beautiful part of Vermont! It was beautiful walking around the trails in fall. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Nice mile long walk down to the river. The walk among the rocks at the bottom was neat, and the views back up river was nice. Good exercise.
