The Equinox Preservation Trust, formed in 1996, is a local non-profit organization whose mission is 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 Preserve consists of over 914 acres on the slopes of Mount Equinox in Manchester, Vermont. In 1996, owners of the Equinox Resort donated conservation easements to the Vermont Land Trust and the Nature Conservancy to permanently protect this land. The Equinox Resort owns the Preserve, which is managed by the Equinox Preservation Trust board of directors, the EPT Forest and Trails Steward and the Equinox Resort staff. The trails of the Preserve are open to the community year-round for non-motorized recreation.
