Drive this scenic mountain which is also used as a outdoor classroom for the study of various species of plants and animals. At 5.2 miles, the Mount Equinox Skyline Drive is the longest privately owned paved toll road in the U.S. Those who prefer to hike can pick up a trail map at the Toll House. At the top of the mountain is our new Saint Bruno Scenic Viewing Center packed with info about Equinox Mountain and the Carthusian Monks. The private property which is 7,000 acres is owned by the Carthusain monks. A cloistered order of Catholic monks. There is the Catholic gift shop at the bottom of the mountain and also souvenirs from your trip.

The views were high and pretty of the valley below but I would not say stunning and not really worth the $20 toll

We were very lucky to have great weather. There wasn't a cloud in the sky as we drove to the top of Mount Equinox. The view from the top is breath taking. We were able to see several mountain ranges.

It's a long way to the top of Equinox mountain, and since it is a toll road, it's also not cheap -- but it's a beautiful view, and a great way to see the top of Vermont. Take in the St. Bruno center at the...More

Hiked to the top of Mount Equinox from the West Union Street trailhead. The trail is very steep and very strenuous. It is definitely worth it. Views at the top are great. Passed quite a few people on the trail. Just make sure to take...More

My Equinox is a wonderful way to view nature at its best. At the top you can see 4 states, the beauty of the valley, monestary..... The road is very curvy but if you stay in low gear and stop at the various lookout points...More

The drive up Mount Equinox is well worth the trip. Make sure, however, that when you drive back down you do as little braking as possible. It's easy to burn the brakes out!!! We were OK but have heard of others who did damage. Signs...More

This is a gem of a drive with fantastic views at the summit. Great visitors centre and restrooms at the summit, probably the best anywhere. Go up early and have the view to yourself. Owners and staff in the shop undersell how great this is,...More

We were short of time, so had to drive up to the top. It was well worth it, as we went on a clear day and had stunning views from all viewpoints! There's an interesting history to be learnt about too!

We did the drive up to the top of My.Equnoix but did not go to the Equinox hotel to eat. No food at the top but great views.
