We hiked Camel's Hump on October 8th and are still marveling both about the beauty of the place and the fact that we actually made it to the top. We hiked Mt. Mansfield the day before and were disappointed that the weather spoiled our view....More

I did this years ago with my children who were in their teens and I was in better shape. This walk will take time. Take water, snacks and many breaks going up, but it is well worth your time.

I visited the Stowe area during the winter. Most days the sky was overcast and the Camel's Hump could not be seen...but eventually the weather broke and the view of the Mountain was breath taking!

This is a hike you do not want to miss. On a clear summer day, there is no other place to be to feel like you are on top of the world. Green trees and meadow for miles. You can see to Lake Champlain and...More

This is my favorite mountain hike. Having no auto road to the summit gives it a different ambiance than those with roads. Many routes to the summit, I like the eastern approach on the Monroe Trail the best.

I agree. Sneakers are quite adequate however...the trail is a very loose rocky one and some people might need the support of a firmer hiking shoe
