Queeche State Park and George White River Junction Reviews
Great Scenery Oct 13, 2008
The focal point of Quechee State Park is the very picturesque Quechee Gorge. The Queeche Gorge is a narrow canyon that was cut out of the Green Mountains by glaciers and the Ottauquechee River. The gorge is spanned by a bridge that connects Route 4 to either side. From the bridge it is 165 feet to the river below. One either side of the gorge are trees and scrubs, which makes for quite a sight in the fall.
You can walk down a 4/10ths mile trail to the bottom of the gorge and see the Ottauquechee and the many boulders that occupy the canyon. The paved trail is fairly steep for the first 10th of a mile, but then levels out. My wife, who has a bad knee, had no trouble walking either direction.
The park has a small campground with a dump station, but no hook ups.
