Amazing hike. Trails were muddy yet we maintained. There’s a good amount of traffic, and not everyone planned very well. The day stared out nice, sunny and cool. The start was about 50 degrees and no wind. As we got higher it stared to rain...More

The hike up Camels hump is not for the out of shape. No matter which side you choose, better be in good physical condition. Once at the top, the views are beyond description. If you can do it in the fall, the colors will amaze....More

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 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
