Length: 6 mi • Est. 4 h 10 m
Camel's Hump is one of the best hiking trails in the Green Mountains. It is the third highest peak in the state. The summit offers unbeatable views in every direction. The trail can be accessed off of Camels Hump Road, where there is a small parking area. This trail can either been done as an out-and-back hike, which is 6 miles round trip via the Monroe Trail, or a loop hike via Monroe Trail, Dean Trail, and Long Trail. Camel's Hump can also be reached from the Burrows Trailhead via the Forest City Trail to Burrows Trail. This route describes the out-and-back option. You will start the hike on the Monroe trail. The Monroe trail is steep, however has plenty of leveling off during the hike. From the Monroe Trail you will reach the Dean Trail intersection, at which point you have the option to turn left onto Dean Trail and then take the Long Trail up to the summit or continue straight on the Monroe Trail to the summit. If you continue straight on Monroe Trail, you will reach the hut clearing at which point the Monroe Trail ends and becomes the Long Trail. It is then a short climb to the summit. The last part of the hike can become very steep and narrow. If you are afraid of heights this may not be for you. Once you reach the summit you have a 360 degree view of nearly every mountain range in the area. You will see Mount Mansfield to the north and Mount Washington to the east. On a clear day you can even see Canada. From the summit, take the Long Trail south back to the Monroe Trail.Show more

Length: 5.5 mi • Est. 3 h 13 m
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. Hikers recommend doing the loop via Long Trail/Forest City in a counter-clockwise direction. Start at the Burrows trailhead, follow the Forest City Connector and Forest City to Long Trail, then go left on Long Trail up to the summit from the south. Heading in the opposite direction from the summit down Long Trail is treacherous in places.Show more

From the small parking lot on Camel’s Hump Road in Huntington, the trail can be used to complete a hike to Camel’s Hump summit or Mt. Ethan Allen. The Forest City Trail follows Brush Brook. Just after the long bridge crossing the brook, there is a small concrete structure on the right which once heated water for the small logging and sawmill community of Forest Mills. At 0.8 mile the trail joins the Connector Trail. Forest City Trail ends at its junction with the Long Trail. Two hundred feet from the end of the trail to the South (right), on the Long Trail, is Montclair Glen Lodge. Camel’s Hump Summit is 1.6 miles to the North (left).Show more
