Amazing day hike in the fall!

I did this hike last week on a Tuesday afternoon. It was quiet, peaceful, and colorful! Loved it. The falls were just a trickle, but the leaves made up for it!

Awesome hiking, but you've got to cabin camp here!!!

We've hiked just about every trail in Merck Forest. It's a managed forest, with a whole lot of maple sugaring going on. The best part about Merck Forest is the cabin camping, especially in the winter. We stayed for three nights and didn't see another soul. Oh, and it's seriously dog-friendly too.

Quechee Gorge is awesome in the fall!

Great tips. This place is especially beautiful in the fall when the leaves are turning. Of course, it's too cold to swim, but the hike down to the gorge is just beautiful.
