Quechee Dam Falls, also known as Mill Pond Falls, is a lovely waterfall in Quechee, Vermont. The waterfall has a total height of about 30 feet and it can be found along the Ottauquechee River. Ottauquechee River flows strongest during spring when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. The falls are most spectacular during the spring thaw and after large rainstorms. The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of a dam followed by a series of cascades.
The 30-foot tall falls can be found right next to the Quechee Covered Bridge off Quechee Main Street. There are many different viewing angles of the falls – including from the covered bridge, the Quechee Gorge Viewpoint park, and climbing on the rocks along the river.
The town of Woodstock is right next door to Quechee. Woodstock, Vermont features many amazing photo spots.

A great waterfall to check out! I visited during the winter and it was cool to see all the snow. Simon Pearce and the covered bridge were other highlights in the area!
