We took the Burrows trail up 2.4 miles to the summit trailhead which was another .03 miles to top. This whole climb up and down took us about four hours and was moderately challenging both ways mostly because it is a very rocky trail so care must be used. The view from the top is magnificent. It's a rocky 360... More

We were there for July 4th, arrived in the parking lot just before 10 a.m. The lot was already pretty full. The hike up took 2 hrs for us to do, with a few short water breaks about every 30-40 minutes. We spent about 40 minutes at the top, and the hike down was 1 hrs 45 minutes. It was... More

This was a fantastic hike to do. The trails were really well maintained, and overall, the hike was fairly easy although strenuous. Despite that, it's worth the effort to get up to the summit! The view from the top is outstanding! Highly recommended if you're in the area and want to go on a hike.

I absolutely love hiking Camel's Hump. I typically go up the Waterbury/Duxbury side up the Monroe Trail. Those that are looking for a little easier hike should consider going up the Huntington side. There are many cool things to see on the hike including the plane crash site and of course the summit which is in the Alpine tundra. The... More

I love hiking up Camels Hump, there are so many trail choices. It's great for a day of trail running. Also great hike to watch the sunset.

State Park with minimally difficult hiking. The subject of an iconic Edward Hopper painting, Camel's Hump offers well-posted trails. Great walk that rewards you at the top of the of the mountain -- beautiful views.

Nice view, relatively easy hike if you start from camels hump road. Vermonters are always there, really nice hike for a early Saturday morning. I did it during winter time, besides dealing with the cold the surface get more stable because the ice, the path could be a little uneven during summer but still a really nice hike.

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
