Mount Equinox just after sunrise. The Equinox Preserve covers 914 acres of forest lands on the eastern slopes of Mount Equinox in Manchester, Vermont. The Equinox Preserve covers 914 acres of
forest lands on the eastern slopes of Mount Equinox in Manchester, Vermont.
The land is owned by the nearby Equinox Resort, open to guests with trails of varying difficulty. Got up at 4:30 to get this one. The preserve is absolutely stunning from sunrise to sunset.
I did hear something big a couple of times in the woods in the dark on the way up, which was a little unnerving but I made it back in one piece.
Standing alone on the bank of this lake/pond, I heard someone in the forest shout 'Goooood Mornin' Vietnaaaam!', a tribute to one of Robin Williams' best films and one you should watch if you haven't already. One of the several small streams that flows through the Equinox Preserve.
There are 13 trails that all vary in difficulty, no matter what your abilities you are guaranteed a beautiful walk. This was taken on the top of mount equinox in Manchester, VT. Great view of Vermont
#roadtrip Great hiking trails for all levels, with the most challenging leading up to the top of Mt. Equinox Only 1 of 3 Abraham Lincoln's hats. This is the only true black colored one. Hole number 1, great views throughout the entire course Gorgeous Manchester Vermont, best kept secret in New England
