United States Vermont Huntington
Tips from the community
Vermont's crème de la crème: Camel's Hump is a challenging-but-totally-achievable 6 mile out-and-back trail with 2,578 ft elevation gain. There are three trailheads: Monroe, Dean and Burrows. Burrows is the most popular and also my fave because of the many sneak peaks of the summit on the way up. Dog friendly, crowded on weekends (I can't recommend a sunrise hike enough), and conveniently located near Stone Corral Brewery for a quick flight and bite on the way back into town.

Camel's Hump is a super recognizable mountain peak in Vermont (just look for the camel's "humps") and provides spectacular views. Trails in the State Park are heavily used in winter, summer, and fall, and the Burrows Trail and Camel's Hump View Trail are accessible and great for hikers of all ages and abilities. The Monroe Trail is moderately difficult and popular, and the Long Trail is difficult and passes over the summit.
