Our Mission: To encourage the responsible use of the land and protection of our natural and cultural history by providing the opportunity to interact with the environment through education, research and environmentally sensitive recreation.
The Equinox Pond, Equinox Pond Rd, and the Pond Pavilion are on private property owned by the Equinox Resort and are not a part of the conserved lands forming the Equinox Preserve.
Dogs must be under control at all times, and on leash on Pond Loop or when approaching other trail users. Reminder: Please clean up after your dog throughout the trail system. Clean-up bags and receptacles are available at the Preserve entrances.
All trails are open for pedestrian use. The Equinox Preservation Trust may close some trails temporarily for repairs or to protect them from damage during muddy conditions.
An enlarged trail map is on display along with copies of the handy pocket guide & trail map, updated program information and special notices.
Informational kiosks greet visitors at both entrances to the Preserve. A third kiosk is located near the trail connector at the rear of the Equinox Hotel parking area.
Naturalists have long held Mt. Equinox in high esteem for its beauty and natural diversity, a valued source of study by botanists and ecologists since the late 1800s.
A variety of mammals populate the slopes of Mt. Equinox, protected by the thick natural cover and food sources that the forest provides.
