Mount Equinox Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Manchester, Vermont, is wedged into a narrow valley formed by the Green Mountains to the east and the Taconic Mountains to the west. Mount Equinox, which towers over the village, is the highest peak in the Taconic Range.
It is the dominant peak on the west side of Manchester and the highest peak in Vermont that is not part of the Green Mountains. The hike up Mount Equinox is worthwhile for its excellent views, both from Lookout Rock which lies northeast of the true summit along the summit ridge, and from the summit itself. The hike described here is a “lollipop hike,” with a loop at the top encompassing the summit and Lookout Rock."
