Drive this scenic mountain which is also used as a outdoor classroom for the study of various species of plants and animals. At 5.2 miles, the Mount Equinox Skyline Drive is the longest privately owned paved toll road in the U.S. Those who prefer to hike can pick up a trail map at the Toll House. At the top of the mountain is our new Saint Bruno Scenic Viewing Center packed with info about Equinox Mountain and the Carthusian Monks. The private property which is 7,000 acres is owned by the Carthusain monks. A cloistered order of Catholic monks. There is the Catholic gift shop at the bottom of the mountain and also souvenirs from your trip.

Must take this road. It is not too difficult as it is well maintained and all paved; just go down in low gear. The views are great and it is worth an hour or so. The admission fee goes to the monks.

We enjoyed our trip up to the mountain top. The view was far and wide. Just being there gave us such a peaceful feeling.

There is a charge for the auto road $20/car. It's a 5 mile auto road currently owned and occupied by the Carthusian monks. Very well maintained and worth the price to contribute to the maintenance of the road. It's the highest peak in the Taconic...More

I hiked the blue trail and while it was definitely steep, it was incredibly maintained and in amazing condition. I love that they had a bench with about 1000ft left to hike, right by the springs. Cool off or just sit and refuel, but rarely...More

We did the drive up to the top of My.Equnoix but did not go to the Equinox hotel to eat. No food at the top but great views.
