We hiked Camel's Hump last weekend and must say it was a gorgeous run. We met a pair of 'older' hikers' who suggested we start at Forest City Trail and catch the Long Trail up to the hump. They said it was strenuous, but we figured they thought it difficult because of their age. Well, those old dears must have... More

In my mind's eye, I imagined mincing up the mountain at leisure, snapping the occasional picture with my SLR. In reality, I realized that my 3 years in IT have wrecked my body and that I live a sinful, slothful life. About 30 minutes into the hike, it began to dawn on me what a huge mistake it had been...

Went up Monroe trail. A little longer but fewer people. Trail is wet but many places for a dog to get a drink. Relatively moderate hike until you hit the Long Trail. make sure you hike the Airline Trail and look for the double yellow marks indicating the wreckage of the plane in 1944. Actually two different areas. One has... More

I've done this hike half a dozen times from multiple trails in summer and winter. Late fall and winter can be unforgiving in bad weather but summer is best time to visit. Avoid after heavy rains for a day or two. Awesome views. Be in shape and bring proper clothes, boots, snacks, sunscreen, and water.

Fantastic hike with panoramic views of Mt Mansfield, the Adirondacks, and Lake Champlain! About 5 hours of hiking excluding summit photos and food break. Picked up a detailed trail map from the Outdoor Exchange Company in Burlington( awesome shop), and decided to summit via the Monroe Trail. Great rock scrambling towards the end- which made it fun! Buggy and biting... More

It's a perfect Day Hike!! There are times in the hike where it is gonna be a vertigo feeling, nevertheless the hike is all worth it when you look at the 360 degree views.

Great moderate to difficult routes with a stunning view at the summit. Wish we had time for the Alpine Trail, where there is apparently remnants of a crashed plane from WWII!

We didn't go up the Burrows Trail. Instead, we went to the right, which makes it a mile longer I believe? This was the less traveled trail and snowshoes were definitely needed. This trail may not be for the faint of heart, as some of the trail is thin and steep, but the views are breathtaking. Do it in the... More

I hiked the Camel's Hump (on the Burrows Trail, which is about 4.5 miles long) last October, and though the weather conditions were far from ideal, I still had a great afternoon. The trail goes uphill at a fairly steep gradient for the vast majority of the hike. You are surrounded by dense forest for most of the time. It... More

Quite a challenge to hike to the top, very vertical - enjoyable, beautiful. Snowshoes or spikes helpful in winter.
