Hiking Mt. Equinox

Our semi-yearly trip to Vermont

We’ve stayed at the North Shire Lodge many times now, sometimes just my husband and I, and others with our kids or a big group of friends. Every time we stay, it’s a wonderful experience. Tim and Kerry are such great hosts, the room is clean and comfortable, the pub is cozy and wonderful, and the breakfast is always so good. It’s such a great location, but actually we just love to stay right there at the Lodge, having a drink in the pub, taking a movie from their huge collection, and hanging out in our room. In good weather, it’s wonderful to open up the back doors of each room, sit outside, and enjoy the amazing view of the mountains with a group of friends. Highly recommend!

Eastern slopes of Mount Equinox

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.

Our go to place ..

Whether its the whole family or a long weekend getaway .. We always feel relaxed when living and planning our next trip back. Chatting with new people and some people we have met before. Maybe a night cap or early dinner in the pub…. Great views all seasons. Great hosts Tim & Kerry!
