Very nice path, the top is definitely worth the long hike. We were walking slowly so it took us about 1h30 to reach the top. Very nice view not crowded. We did it in the winter and it is very nice.

A really good, but long, hike up Camel's Hump and back from the Winooski River valley. Some rocky ridgelines provide great views of the mountain during the approach, and the summit sure is rewarding after so much elevation gain!

Hiked up dec 29 2018. Trail was good and packed , didn’t need snow shoes . make sure you have some spikes . Some places had lots of ice.

Great hike. !!!! . First time hiking in Vermont from. Canada .

12/13/18 - Honestly not a difficult hike at all. The hardest part was the fact that I didn’t have spikes on while going through the packed snow. Any person who is at least somewhat active can complete this hike with ease (as long as they don’t forget their traction like me! Ha!) I’m a pretty fast hiker but even without spikes I did the whole loop to Camel’s hump and back in 2 and a half hours with about 25-30 minutes at the top when I met another person and chatted with him a bit while we shared the view. Very windy though only lasted about 5 minutes at the summit and spent the other 20 minutes just below where we were protected from the wind. I would rate this trail as easy to moderate depending on your baseline fitness level. I’m pretty active so for me it was easy but for those who aren’t very active it’s probably moderate with some slightly challenging spots at the top. It’s a steady incline the whole way up and gets slightly steeper the last mile or so. Views were worth it for sure.

What a fun trail to hike in the snow and ice-wear your micro spikes! The summit is amazing and getting to slide down in some spots was a blast!!

I Hiked 11-7 it was raining in the early am. Then it turned beautiful. It was Diwali and my wife put Tilak on my far head to help guide my way. I went the easy way and followed the Burrows Trail. A little challenging at the very top. But this is very doable. Fantastic view. Saw like further then I could believe. ONE MAN GATHERS WHAT ANOTHER MAN SPILLS.

Great hike with an amazing view. Very popular so the top may be hard to find privacy.

Absolutely beautiful views. The trail did get challenging about halfway up as we reached the pine forest area. It was rather slippery with ice and snow in the 34 degree weather, and the wind was very strong on the summit. Would do it again in a heartbeat though, wish it wasn’t so cold and could have enjoyed the view a little longer.

Really nice day hike. The bottom half is fairly gradual through some beautiful forests, then the second half gets more rocky, steep and technical. Nothing seriously dangerous, but it makes for great views and some fun scrambling. I took the dog, and she made it up just fine without much help, but older dogs may have trouble.

Burrows both ways bc hiking with a dog & wasn’t sure if other trails had tough scrambles. Easy for him. Those 2 miles up get your heart pumping, but good for almost all ages. Hit snow about 40 min from the top. Wasn’t an issue until the Long trail to summit where there was ice. Just pay attention. Nervous for hikers in sneakers without ankle support. Tons of people.
Please leash your dog if they run & jump on smaller dogs & overwhelm them. Plz don’t hike 1:4 with a pack of unleashed dogs during busy foliage weekends!

One of my favorite hikes in VT! The first half is easy. The second half not so easy! Amazing views at the top!

Arrived at 9:30 went up counterclockwise like the sign recommends. Very good views. Was wet so rick was slippery. Summit had some snow and ice. Met the masses at the top. Dogs, kids, and lots of people. Went down burgess trail. Muddy with scores of people coming up. Very pretty but try to do mid week or get there early. We were amazed at how many people were parked along road. Total time -3 hours 15 minutes.

Great trail for a good work out. I would assume that is a great view of Burlington but the clouds were low when I went. Highly recommend.

Been doing this trail my whole life, is a must-hike for anyone within reasonable distance. Best views in the state. Challenging enough but did it with my 18lb terrier this year not to mention a whole elementary was going up as I was going down. So don’t be intimidated by the “hard” rating

Decided to catch a sunrise this AM up on camels hump. Took burrows trail up and this was definitely a heart pumper, consistent climbing until the clearing before heading up on the long trail to the summit. Took a bout 1:20 up in the dark! I had to stop short from climbing all the way up to summit because of 40-50mph wind, but the sunrise was absolutely gorgeous with great 360 view.

great hike!
I would say moderate and not hard.
Took us 5 hours in total from the parking lot and back include stops...
Amazing view, wet and a bit slippery forest and impressive pass from the forest to the Rocky summit.
could be better marked tho

Enjoyed this hike. View are great at the top. Not much of a trail run due to boulders but a great workout. Took me 68 minutes both ways.

This is a challenging but rewarding hike. We took the Monroe Trail up and back. There are some rocky and slick spots, particularly after you’re about two miles in. The last .3 miles is very rocky and steep, but doable. It took us about 5 hours total. You cannot beat the 360 views at the top!

Great run/power hike. Challenging in spots. I did read about people being scare of heights should not. On the Monroe trail that shouldn’t be the case. I didn’t experience the other trails.

Enjoyed the hike even though we had 20 yards of visibility and the wind was blowing 30-40 mph. Being that this was my first time up Camel's Hump I will have to return to experience the gorgeous views. Parking lot off of camel's hump Rd was packed but trail wasn't overly crowded

The best trail I have hiked in vermont! The trail on the way up is majestic - just incredible. There are a few steep and rocky areas, but the view at the top is incredible. There is room on the top to enjoy lunch and view the incredible scenery. I highly suggest this trail for the adventurous! It is somewhat difficult and steep in areas, so good shoes are a must.

Incredible hike with great views but it comes with some work. I highly recommend the popular loop that combines Dean's Trail, the Long Trail and the Monroe Trail. The crowds were out for Labor Day weekend but certainly not overcrowded. The Long Trail isn't for those who aren't able to climb boulders combined with narrow trails. For a smoother climb, take the Monroe Trail both out and back.

This is a nice hike, definitely got my heart-rate up and a good sweat. The Monroe trail ascends through forest, sometimes with a decent pitch but often leveling off to allow you to catch your breath. It is consistently rocky requiring constant vigilance - and the rock can be slippery even if not wet. We were surprised to find a fair bit of water in the trail on the mid to upper part even after a dry spell. You only get views during the final ascent to the summit up the steep rocky section after the end of the Monroe. We are in our late 50’s/early 60’s in good physical shape but this was our first climb of the summer and it took us a solid 4.5 hour round trip with 15+ minute stops on the way up for lunch and at the summit. It was almost 2 full hours to get down surprisingly as we were cautious moving down the rocks. We were both tired and sore but felt good about summiting.

Harder than expected, but that could have been because I was pregnant! More rugged than the Monroe trail.

Took Burrows to the Long Trail to the summit. Had a 3 y/o & a 16 m/o in backpacks plus a dog...was tough, but very do-able. Views at the top are amazing 360° & worth any pains of climbing up/traversing down.

Fun until I saw a bear! I ran
