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.

  • With the drought, not so dramatic view. Also, VERY crowded. Worth it if you haven't been to Royal Gorge or the Gorge of the Rio Grande. 
  • The Quechee Gorge and Bridge are definitely worth stopping for. There is a visitor's center with a large parking area and there is ample parking at the shops across the road. Be careful on the bridge ...  read more »
  • The scenery is not as dramatic as some other gorges I've seen (like outside of Taos, NM), but beautiful, nonetheless. 
  • 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.
  • Cool Vermont stuff.
  • Cute gift shop and bathrooms.
  • My family and I go here every year, and each year it's just as beautiful as the last. However, they've taken out some of our favorite trails, which is a bit disappointing for those of us whom have been there before. But, for a nice, long walk with a gorgeous view, this definitely is great. Also, we always stop at the Antique Shop and such just down the road from here before we go. There's a little shop there that sells delicious homemade ice cream and I would highly recommend it!
