Tips from the community

Vermont's Grand Canyon? Prob a little dramatic, but the bridge over Quechee Gorge does offer one of the most insane views in the state. Pull up and park at the visitor's center. Walk across the street and over the bridge to get the view from above, then circle back and take the trail directly behind the visitor's center to hike down into the gorge. The hike is easy (perfect for families and puppers), and there's a nice spot to take a dip. While in the area, drive the 15 mins over to Woodstock for really rad book stores, restaurants, drinks, and small town Vermont vibes. Distance from Burlington: 1.5 hours.
