Take a scenic drive up to one of the highest peaks in Vermont.

Mount Equinox is nestled in the Green Mountain National Forest in southwestern Vermont. The Skyline Drive takes you to the summit and is open from Memorial Day through Halloween between 9 am and 5 pm. Stop by the welcome center to receive a token that allows you to continue your journey. Skyline Drive is the longest privately owned toll road in the nation and charges $20 per vehicle (an additional $5 per passenger is also required). Please note that buses, RVs, and large vans are not permitted on Skyline Drive, but motorcycles and cars are welcome. The price of admission is worth it for the scenic views of the mountain and surrounding forested valleys.

This road has been open since 1947 and is over 5 miles long. Feel free to stop at various vista points and bring your own food and coolers to the picnic areas during your drive to soak in all the sights of this breathtaking mountain. Leashed dogs are welcome to come along with you to experience Mount Equinox too. Mount Equinox is over 3,500 feet above sea level and is typically breezy all year long, so a light jacket is a good thing to have with you on this drive. There is also a scenic viewing center building at the top if you need a place to warm up at the summit. Camping, fishing, and hunting are strictly prohibited in this area, but Mount Equinox is the perfect area for a daytime outing with friends and family.
