Great hike! The rock scrambling/climbing near the top is a bit tricky when it’s wet. We were not rewarded with a view on the day we hiked it. The entire summit was in a cloud. Even without the view, it’s a must do trail.

Fun hike, absolutely beautiful views from the top. I was there just before sunset and it was lovely. Looked like the foliage was about to get pretty nice along the trail too. Took me 1hr 15 min on the way up, and I was surprised but it took me almost just as long to get back down.

I did Camel's Hump in the morning and found that hike a lot more difficult than Mt Hunger, even though I did this one second.

Wicked hike! Steep, rocky terrain from the trailhead all the way to the top. Not for the faint of heart.

This trail is a workout. The climb, the boulders and the sweat are totally worth it when you get to the top. Try to pick a dry day to have the best footing.

Great day hike for those people looking to get out and see some great views of Vermont. Be careful on some sections of the trail if you own a dog, it can get challenging. There is a way to surpass those areas, just make sure to be careful and pay attention to the trail!

Lots of variety to this one. Add White Rock to it if you can. Commanding view of 3 state ranges. Thanks for a unbeatable 78th birthday gift, Hunger Mountain!

Fun hike! Brought my two pups, one who is a 75lb golden retriever and the other a 50lb border collie. They loved the steep climb towards the summit and the waterfall near the base! Will definitely do it again soon! Get ready to work those lungs!

Difficult but enjoyable hike. Last .2 miles to summit is basically rock climbing! No warm up, from car you start up hill and it is that for about 2 miles. Recommend the hike but be ready for a challenge!
