Amazing views of the surrounding mountains, hills, and forests of Vermont.

The trail to the peak of Mount Equinox is 6.5 miles out and back, and is slightly more strenuous than the trails nearby. Your efforts will certainly be rewarded as you take in the 360 degree views from the summit. The Mount Equinox trail is most commonly used by trail runners, hikers, and sometimes snowshoers in the winter. This is a great training trail if you are preparing for a longer trek, or if you simply want some good exercise!

Dogs are allowed on this trail, so bring your furry friend!

Awesome hike

Worth the hike. A little steep the last km, but amazing 360 degree views at the top.
