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.

My daughter and I (ages 52 and23) did this challenging (for us newbies to hiking) loop day hike on a warm September weekday. We started at the Monroe trailhead, hiking up to Dean through Wind Gap, turning north on the Long Trail to the summit. We continued off the summit north to the clearing the picked up Monroe for the... More

Great views during fall leaf season, tough hike for flatlanders. Popular with locals, lots of dogs make the hike too.

Path is well indicated and maintained. Must be in shape to hike up and down the rocky paths, however well worth it for the stunning views.

Great mountain to hike. Perfect in terms of duration, difficulty and view. Took the most popular Monroe Trail up. Broke off and took Alpine South bast the crash bomber and up the south side of the peak. This is a very different hike then straight up Monroe to Long Trail. Go up one, and down the other for both experiences.... More

One of our favorites. A bit busy on the weekends. Try it during the week, or in the winter for less human traffic.

We parked off the dirt road to head up the Monroe Trail. Around 3+ miles is the distance up - good trail, mostly under cover of woods. You will cut left on the Long Trail for the final ascent to the views of the surrounding Green Mountains. Instead of doing an about face and heading back down the Monroe Trail,... More

This is a 2.3 mile hike that leads to an astounding view of Vermont, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and New York. The hike itself is moderately difficult--and proper hydration is no joke. The 2 and a half hour forest walk is beautiful, but after awhile it gets a little repetitive. And, the trip down requires your tired body and wondering mind... More
