In-Person Guided Hike


Join us for an amazing opportunity to hike with a VINS Educator along the VINS Nature Trails or down into the Quechee Gorge. Delve into the natural history of the area, learn to identify common plants and animals, or uncover the geological history of this region as you descend into the gorge. With a naturalist at your side, there is so much to discover! (60-minutes).

Available during the summer (June – August).
