The hike up Camels hump is not for the out of shape. No matter which side you choose, better be in good physical condition. Once at the top, the views are beyond description. If you can do it in the fall, the colors will amaze....More

We didn’t do the hike, but I wanted to give this a 5 because everywhere we went we were pointing this mountain out and it will forever be a great memory.

A sight visible from all over Vermont. Beautiful at a distance and a great hiking destination. Well worth a trip up for the view.

This area can be a bit buggy, so plan ahead and keep on hiking! Moderate hike has nicely varied terrain, with a great view from the top

We hiked Camel's Hump on October 8th and are still marveling both about the beauty of the place and the fact that we actually made it to the top. We hiked Mt. Mansfield the day before and were disappointed that the weather spoiled our view....More
