Quechee Gorge – Vermont’s Little Grand Canyon”: Weekend Hike

Posted on

We were at Vermont for the weekend and wanted a good hike, so we headed to the Quechee Gorge, which is Vermont’s little Grand Canyon. I am so excited to share this post mostly because of how excited I was when I saw the beauty of the Gorge. It is a tourist attraction in Vermont along route 4. The gorgeous scenery can be viewed 125 feet from the bridge on route 4, overlooking Ottauquechee River.

The gorge is the deepest Gorge in Vermont and it is 13000 years old. The trail is beautifully shaded.

The hike is about a mile, with exceptional views.

The Quechee Gorge is also a popular destination for kayaking. Though we didn’t kayak this time, we plan on revisiting.

There were shops and restaurants around the Gorge. The biggest antique mall i have ever been. It was an awesome experience, that is if you are into things like that.

Finally, what is a hike without the proper outfit? Because of the rough terrain of the Gorge, you need sturdy sneakers and proper hiking outfits. See below hiking outfit suggestions:
