I rode this route on a perfect late August day.
The road is technical as the hairpin turns also possess more elevation changes than most.
Another plus: it is not nearly as crowded as I expected.
You will definitely smell the over-heated brakes on the descending cars!
The view, a bit generic, but itís more about the road anyway.

They are working on opening the hotel/bar on top of the mountain now and there is a bathroom there now.

Three or four-miles south of Manchester, Vermont is the paved, 2-lane Skyline Drive ascending to the 3,848' summit of Mount Equinox.
Panoramic views of the Green, Taconic, Adirondack, White and Bershire Mountains of Vermont, New York, New Hampshire and Massachusetts can be seen along the way and at the summit.
The inn at the top of Mount Equinox is closed and there are no other amenities at this time.
However it is a beautiful, exciting ride for the small toll fee required.
