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.

First time doing Camels Hump on this trail. Did it with an amazing best friend and hiking buddy! It was beautiful, the leaves were exactly the correct level of crunchy and the views were amazing when there were breaks in the clouds. Highly recommend and actually may prefer this trail to the others I have done in the past (see other reviews) on this same mountain. Thanks All Trails Community.

The last mile on the way up is extremely steep! Made it up to summit in about 50 minutes. Amazing, amazing views! Saw a black bear on the summit, about 30 feet away from me. It ran away, but I think it was coming for a huge pile of peanuts someone had littered on the top... beautiful hike!

This would have been an awesome hike without the dog. We made it just a ways up the long trail section before we had to turn around and come back because we were tired of lifting the dog over rocks. Got to be some really great scrambling and beautiful views, but not good with a dog! I should have brought a goat instead...

Beautiful views from the summit. Took us around 5 hours, but one of those hours was spent enjoying the summit :)

Beautiful trail. I believe moderately difficult is an accurate description but the views are 100% worth the challenge. We did the burrow trail up and back and it took us three hours. The parking area fills up fast so arrive early.

Fantastic Trail!
Heading up via Forest City to Long Trail reduces the traffic but it's a lot more strenuous. Great scrambling on the last mile.

Awesome views! I did Burrows Trail out and back. Descent was challenging. The earlier you get on the trail, the better. Overall a lot of fun

We went up Burrows and down Long and Forest City Trails, and the ascent took us about 1.5 hours, while the descent took about twice that, for a total of 4.5 hours. The ascent was steadily uphill but relatively moderate until the peak, while the descent was quite steep on the Long Trail portion. But the views are incredible and the forest is beautiful! One of our favorite hikes.
