Travel Tag: Quechee Gorge

I have been so excited to share this post, mostly because it has become one of my favorite spots in New England. Think “Where the Wild Things Are.”

Aside from being Vermont’s deepest gorge, Quechee Gorge nestled in Quechee, Vermont (pronounced QUEE-CHEE) is 13,000 years old. There isn’t much to do in the surrounding area but if you love the outdoors like I do, you’d enjoy it. There are a few shops and some adorable restaurants with all kinds of food. I would say it’s a summer town; I saw a few shops with signs stating “closed for the winter” (WINTER? It’s only November!) so you’ll notice my destination highlights are limited to “where to eat.”

Along Route 4 there are viewing points from 125 feet above, overlooking the Ottauquechee River, the river that flows through the gorge. When you’re walking the Quechee Gorge trail, along the river, make sure you walk its entirety. At the end there is a secluded lookout and if you’re feeling adventurous walk down onto the rocks for an unobstructed view of the gorge and the oldest standing steel bridge in the state.

And this outfit? I think it really explains my style- Aztec accents with bright colors and bohemian, oversized fit. This cape is cozy and one of my most favorite finds to date. Get this, its under $30 so get it while you can! The yellow flats weren’t suitable for the terrain (for obvious reasons) so I switched into my Nike’s. Sneakers didn’t quite go with the look I was going for but they were functional and thats all that matters when you’re exploring.
