It is not too often the word easy is used in conjunction with Camel’s Hump. Vermont’s hunchback of winter, the 4,063-foot-high peak is one of the state’s most prominent features and is also a summit devoid of any development, like ski lifts or antennas. From the gentle and welcoming Camel’s Hump View Trail, skiers and snowshoers can pause on a bench and take in the views of the mountain a few miles away. Camel’s Hump View is a relatively new wheelchair-accessible path built in the early 1990s. Because it must accommodate wheelchairs during the non-snow months, it is wide and its grade is gentle. This 0.8-mile loop is a very easy excursion, ideal for the family. The kids will enjoy trying to ski or snowshoe from bench to bench, crossing a bridge, looking for the work done by woodpeckers, or trying to identify the animal tracks—like those of a snowshoe hare—in the snow. The benches are also good spots for a lunch. Surface quality: Ungroomed, skier packed.
