Quechee Gorge, Quechee

(4.3/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see Quechee Gorge and other attractions that appeal to you using our Hartford vacation route planner.

  • This is a great area for some light hiking and exploring. There is a trail that goes along the river that has some real nice views. Great views from the bridge above of the gorge area.  more »
  • Beautiful to see in the fall , summer or spring. Enjoyed walking on trail. Very nice place to vacation.  more »
  • Went in February, everything was snow covered. We got lucky and hiked down to the water on a 50-degree day. Beautiful, worth the slipping and sliding. Snowshoes recommended.  more »

  • Great pit stop along highway 4.
  • Excellent for those looking solicitud and a little bit of thrill at the same time.
  • Beautiful location, but the store isn't anything too spectacular.
  • This is where you park to hike the Quechee Gorge. So not much to report other than they had some nice little write-ups about stuff, maps of the trails, and some information.
  • Cute gift shop and bathrooms.
