This may be a dumb question, but where is the equinox? And the run to start from where?
Thanks

JAAY,

Mt. Equinox is in Manchester, VT in the Southern part of the state. In years past the foliage run has started with an initial meetup in MA, and then others joining us at various spots along the way. We usually have a NYC contingent, and folks from the other NE states as well.

Skyline Drive on Mt. Equinox is a private toll road. It gets used for hill climbs and general siteseeing. VERY twisty with a steep elevation change. Frankly during foliage season is not the best time to drive as there are alot of leafpeepers on the mt. and a bunch of Porsches ripping up and down it can generate some flak. It's a great ride up and down at any speed though. We've always included this as part of the foliage runs in the past. I would be open to any alternate route and destination suggestions.

-Rey

Thumbs up

I just took delivery of my 06 Boxster S Thursday night. I am definitely interested in meeting up with other owners and taking a foliage drive somewhere.
