Would've been moderate if it weren't so muddy and washed out, but that and the steepness of the second half make it difficult. It was nice and the payoff at the summit was great, but I probably wouldn't do it again.

Absolutely loved this trail! Hiked it on Saturday, 6/8 with my best friend and my 5 year old dog (Samoyed). I took the advice of others and went counter clockwise from Forest City Trail - Long Trail - Burrows Trail. Views going up the south side were beautiful and it actually made the descent down Burrows pretty anti-climactic. The peak was a bit crowded, it was a beautiful June Saturday, so we were thankful for the peace and solitude we had while ascending. If you are with a dog that cannot rock scramble you may have some difficulty. Mine is part mountain goat and handled it well! There were lots of gnats and the whole loop was pretty muddy. Definitely wear waterproof boots and be ready with bug spray (we re-applied 3x). Please keep your dogs on leash and close by. Not all dogs who go hiking are super friendly with others and don’t like strange dogs turning around and coming back to them. And please pack in and carry out all dog poop!

Great hike! I’ve hiked Burrows plenty of times and was looking for something new. I tracked the distance on my Apple Watch and recorded just over 6 miles round trip. I went counterclockwise and went up Forest City and down Burrows. I find it much easier to go up the steep rocks at the end then down them. It was buggy towards the bottom but if you moved quick enough, they weren’t bad. I would agree with the Hard rating this hike receives.

went today and it turned out great. the change in vegetation and variety of geology is impressive, along with the second half of the hike through a stream making for a tranquil experience. the overcast conditions did prevent any scenic views, however it was cool to be in a cloud. 20' patch of snow to walk through. it's packed in the center to the point of ice at times. it's loose and you'll sink along the sides which look attractive because they're pristine. a lot of people struggled but if you hold the trees near icy patches and test before you step your full weight, you'll be fine. hiking poles are a bit advantage way on this trail.

not worth the trip. fairly wide first road all the way up with loose scree topping drainage projects. heard good things but apparently has been clear cut a bit in recent years. Not sure of time of year or location but bugs we're absurd. good view of a waterfall was only highlight.

April 19, 2019 - The river at the very start of the trail was too high to cross! Hopefully later in the season the water will be lower and the trail traversable. We were really looking forward to the hike and hope to do it someday. At least we saw a moose on the road in!

Did this hike May 5th. Made it to the summit, however several feet of snow for the last .9 miles. Views were amazing.

Very snowy today. Would recommend microspikes or even snowshoes at least for another week. Parts of Long Trail South were not easy to follow with current weather. I ended up doing out and back on Burrows after getting lost on the Long Trail descending part of the loop. Still, a great hike that's not as strenuous as mansfield.

Hiked on April 22, 2019. Beautiful sunny day. Hike was very muddy for first 2.3 miles then turned to deep snow. Was not able to reach summit - would have needed snow shoes. Snow covered entire trail and was 2-3 feet deep. Four other groups also had to turn back. Need to wait 2-3 more weeks for the snow to melt before being able to reach summit. Hope this is helpful to others :)

Great hike, but the snow was a bit too heavy to make it much further than 3 miles. Beautiful views and all around nonetheless. We will return as the season progresses.

Awesome moderate hike! We took the blue blazed Burrows trail out and back. hard pack snow rail for first mile turns to hard pack snow ice rail to summit micro spikes make it enjoyable. Plenty of post holing by those who chose to climb without spikes and needed to find traction to climb. 2 to 3 ft post holes. Rock cap with 360 degree view is as good as any and well worth the climb. Great view of mount Mansfield, as well as the ski slopes of mount Abraham and Lincoln and the Champlain Valley a little too overcast to see the Adk,s but the high clouds did not disrupt the vast view. Met dogs, a very friendly local three generation familly including three girls from around 10 to teens , and mom who are ascending every month of the year,and their impressive 71 year grandpa leading the charge along with grandma made my heart warm giving me hope for myself as I approach 60. Hiking people are awesome so get out there! 2600 ft 6 miles round trip with view spots 3.0 mi.to summit 2 hours 33 mins 4/7/19

Was disappointed that there was nothing posted online about how difficult this trailhead was to get to. I attempted 2 trailheads : Burrows (which as soon as I arrived on Camels Hump Rd there was a large sign saying “Camels Hump Trail Closed” with an orange flag on it) and Monroe (which after turning onto northern Camels Hump Rd a local told me he didn’t think I’d make it to the TH; not to mention the entire dirt road to get to Camels Hump Rd is full of pot holes and completely rudded). I would not recommend this hike until summer for anyone with a Sudan. It’s unfortunate that the locals don’t post reports here and the State parks don’t keep trail info up to date. Would’ve saved me an hour and a half this am.

This tops off at my favorite winter hike to date! We did this yesterday. Plan on bringing snowshoes the snow near the top is soft right now. Climbing the trail to where it intersects with the Long trail is very steep. The view from the summit is hard to beat. I think it’s the best in VT including high peaks. You could see Mt Washington and it’s neighboring peaks all the way to the Adirondacks. This mountain also has some of the most fun butt sliding I’ve ever done. Highly recommend.

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.
