This scenic gorge is beautiful in the rain, snow or sunshine. Watch for traffic while viewing the river from the bridge. A small shopping and antique store nearby completes the visit.
We followed this river for many miles and were delighted by its tranquillity as it passed through Woodstock and the neighbouring towns. We were especially fascinated by all the covered bridges; Taftsville etc, many of which were damaged in 2011 by Huricane Irene in 2011, but which have now been faithfully restored. A lovely, very attractive area.
There's something about the Ottaquechee River that gets under your skin - it is so merry, it skips and dances over the stones. You can drive along it for beautiful mile after beautiful mile. We just loved it to bits.
After a couple year hiatus, my daughter and I visited our favorite flyfishing spots on the Ottaquechee. While still scenic from a distance, major storms and other factors have apparently taken their toll. The riparian zones seem bare, sediment covers the river bed and has greatly diminished insect activity. It feels like one is wading in a drainage ditch. Really... More
Great views of the gorge from the bridge and from the base of the gorge. Great antiques mall and toy museum. Vermont Spirits is also a must see.
The kids were delighted to get their toes wet as they explored the river behind the Long Trail Brewery. Crystal clean and clear, butterflies and dragon flies and all the natural wonders were there for our splashing, wild appreciation!
We drove along the river a few times on the way to Woodstock. This is a beautiful drive. I had to stop several times to take photos, to drive across covered bridges and to take pictures from the other side of the river. This was a perfect, relaxing and beautiful drive.
