Vermont's Matterhorn in miniature...from the Huntington side, long scenic ride up a narrow dirt road to the trailheads. Well marked paths, but upper part of the mountain does require some modest scrambling over ledges. Amazing view! Really busy on foliage weekends.

Lots of hiking, made it to the top with five kids in tow. Going down took forever since my knees were unhappy, but it was worth it. I'm afraid of heights, so the top of the mountain was kind of terrifying, but the views were amazing. SO AMAZING!!! bring plenty of water to drink and pee before you go. took... More

Less crowded than Mansfield, but equally amazing views! Definitely worth the drive to the base from Burlington.

My friends and I started at the Monroe trail head near where the Army Air Force plane crashed in 1944. The hike is totally in the woods except for the last bit which is above the timberline. The woods are lovely and the trail is well marked. When you reach the top, the views are spectacular. There are many great... More

No question one of the nicest hikes in VT. Very unique with spectacular views at the top. Even a fun hike in winter, just wear and bring the proper gear.

This is a strenuous hike. Don't underestimate it. But we loved it. It was so windy at the top (more than you would think), so dress warmly. Driving in to the parking area is a challenge. Road is unpaved and very rugged, so be careful what car you drive here. And you drive so far back in the hills, you'll... More

I hiked up and down Monroe with a side detour on Alpine, and had a great time. We started around 12 and were down around 4, mostly because it was a bit chilly and windy on the summit, so we didn't want to stay up there too long. It was a great day over Columbus Day weekend, so the views... More

The burrows trail is a lot more challenging than we expected! We are a young couple who are used to hiking and it took a lot out of me, some parts are quite steep! I was so happy when we got to the 'top'.. Only to realise that it was enclosed and the rewarding views involved a further 1 mile... More

The mountain called Camel Hump can be seen from many locations in Vermont. It can be see from the Rock of Ages stoneyard, from I 89 between Burlington and Montpelier, and from the Charlotte ferry between Vermont and New York. I understand it is on the Vermont coin as well! So beautiful!
