A DRIVE TO THE SKY
From historic Route 7A between Manchester and Arlington, Vermont, Skyline Drive — the longest privately owned, paved toll road in the United States — ascends 3,248 feet over 5.2 miles to the top of Mount Equinox. In continuous operation since its completion in 1947, it is one of the safest, best engineered, well constructed toll roads in the country.
There are several vistas and picnic areas along the Drive, which winds upward through four distinct forest types. Visible in the valley on your left as you crest the mountain is the Charterhouse of the Transfiguration, the only Carthusian monastery in North America.
Before you begin your journey up Skyline Drive you will need to stop at the Skyline Drive Welcome Center located on Route 7A to receive your token. Please refer to the TRAVEL INFO page for additional details.
Our GPS address is 6369 Skyline Drive, Sunderland, VT 05250.
SAINT BRUNO SCENIC
The Center has restrooms with changing tables.
Maybe it’s the rarified air at 3,848 above sea level, or the sweeping panoramic views at all points of the compass. “Awesome” is one mightily overworked word in modern lexicon, but here it fits.
