Yes, the views are nice, but not Great. Maybe if you are used to very flat terrain, the views will impress you from the Skyline Drive. Or if the leaf color is at peak, it might be worth it. Plan on going further north in...More

We drove to the top of Mt Equinox early afternoon. Some haziness prevented crystal clear views, but we were able to see a long way! The history behind the mountain was quite interesting. Especially learning about the Carthusian religious order. The monastery can be seen...More

This was a long steep mountain drive but worth the effort. The vistas were amazing and on a clear day, you can see Canada. After visiting the former retreat/museum take one of the walking trails

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.
