See the deepest gorge in Vermont.
Quechee Gorge is a beautiful natural attraction, formed by glaciers thousands of years ago.
From Route 4, take pictures from the bridge of the mile long gorge as the Ottauquechee River flows through it.
After, walk down the scenic wooded path behind the gift shop to Mill Pond Falls and see rushing water even more up close.
Continue down to Dewey Pond if you’d like for a longer walk and head back to the visitor’s center.
You can also walk down to the bottom of the gorge too and go swimming or just sit on a boulder and enjoy the view.
This top attraction is right off Route 4 in Quechee. Parking is plentiful at the Visitor’s Center right before the bridge.
To the Gorge
If you park in the visitor’s center you’ll have to cross Rt. 4 to get to the sidewalk and the best place to view the gorge, which is the bridge.
To the Bottom of the Gorge
Behind the visitor’s center is a winding wooded trail that takes you to the bottom of the gorge. At the intersection you’ll see a chain link fence and you can go left or right. Left goes down to the bottom of the gorge. Right allows you to go bypass crossing a busy road and walk down to the falls or back up to the bridge for the best viewing.
To the Falls
There are signs behind the gift shop that tell you have far the dam and falls are from the bridge.
It’s not a long walk to the falls (10-15 min. or so), but it is mostly downhill.
Definitely worth a visit!
