Camel's Hump State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A hump of solid stone composes the 4,083-foot summit, tufted with a small patch of alpine tundra. Expansive views sweep across the state. A 20,000-acre protected landscape surrounds it. No structure has ever stood upon the summit, making it Vermont’s highest undeveloped peak. It’s a popular destination, but the scenery and views merit the crowds.
The hike ascends on Monroe and Dean trails, passing the Hump Brook Tenting Area midway up the mountain and the Montclair Glen Lodge on the ridgeline. Follow the Long Trail north, clamber over the rocky summit, and descend. Though it could be a day hike, spending the night makes this trip a more leisurely adventure and provides the opportunity to reach the summit before day-hikers arrive en masse. Dogs are permitted but must be leashed above treeline and at designated shelters and camping areas."
