Mt Equinox Skyline Auto Road
1A Saint Bruno Drive, Manchester, VT • Ph: 802-362-1114
At 3,848 feet above sea level, the summit of Mount Equinox offers panoramic views of the Green, White, Adirondack, Berkshire and Taconic mountain ranges. Several paved parking areas provide spectacular views, but most outstanding is the Skyline Drive itself as you drive along the crest of the mountain on your way to the summit. The Green Mountains, The Valley of Vermont and the White Mountains of New Hampshire may be seen to the east. The Adirondack Mountains of New York provide the backdrop to the west, and the Taconic and Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts to the south. Guard rails have been installed almost the entire length of the drive making it one of the safest, best engineered, well constructed toll roads in the country, and it is said that the Skyline drive remains today as the longest, privately owned, paved toll road in the United States. There is an excellent selection of lodging in the area – some with a view of Mt. Equinox.
