This 4,083 foot peak has a very unique summit cone that gives it its name. You'll be following the Burrows Trail through Camel's Hump State Park for just over 5 miles round trip. Right before you reach the summit you'll come to the junction of the Long Trail which you will follow up the steep cone to the summit. From there you can continue down Long Trail to Forest City Trail, or return the way you came.

Nice hike to a spectacular vista! Very steep descent- I would highly suggest poles. We made it up Burrows in 1 hour and 25 minutes and down in an hour and a half. Steep, but nothing dangerous- highly recommend!!!

made it a loop and did Burrows to Long Trail South to Forest City Trail. The summit was beautiful and alpine laurel was in bloom everywhere! The descent was steep and challenging but fun and mellowed out on the Forest City Trail. Great day hike loop with a little challenge and great scenery and views!

Will bring hiking poles next time. Thin trail, busy with hikers.

Awesome way to spend a weekend in VT! Views were obscured by fog, but nevertheless the summit was worth it. The trail was a bit slippery from rain the night before. Despite wiping out several times, it was a great hike. We went out and back the same way, so we did not complete the loop.
