The Equinox Preserve covers 914 acres of forest lands on the eastern slopes of Mount Equinox in Manchester, Vermont. It is open to the public for year-round, non-motorized recreation. Over 11 miles of marked and maintained trails provide access to these unique mountainous woodlands. From the North Shire Lodge, turn left and go North on 7A, turn left on Prospect St., and left on West Union St. At the end of the road is a parking area, and trail maps can be found at the kiosk. The Blue trail is a difficult but rewarding hike that will take you to the summit of Mt. Equinox.
