We took the Monroe Trail that is marked as moderately difficult and that's accurate. We hiked on a pretty warm day and it took us about six hours to the summit and back. The... read more

We took the Monroe Trail that is marked as moderately difficult and that's accurate. We hiked on a pretty warm day and it took us about six hours to the summit and back. The trail is very well marked, and quite steep in parts, but there are no open-faced rock climbs if anyone in your group is up for the... More

Great views on a easy hike that can be done year round. Depending on where you start from the hike can be easy to hard. Some trails are very steep. Parking is an issue as there have been car break-ins over the years. Easy to get to so the day hike can be done easily in 1 day.

Hiked the 8 mile round trip, approaching from the Huntington side using Forest City Trail and The Long Trail .. high winds at the summit made it entertaining, as did the boulders and the views before I ascended into the clouds. This is a hike for folks in decent shape with proper rugged footwear and water and layers as the... More

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!
