Camel’s Hump via the Burrows Trail

Camel’s Hump via the Burrows Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Camel’s Hump is one of only five mountains higher than 4,000 feet in Vermont, and is one of the few places with a true alpine environment. The distinctive shape is recognizable from below, and the open summit provides incredible views to New Hampshire, up and down Vermont, and over to New York. The Burrows Trail is one of the easiest ways to climb this tall peak and is very straightforward.

Rising high along the spine of the Green Mountains, Camel’s Hump is recognizable by its shape and elevation as one of the most iconic summits in Vermont. This straightforward trail leaves from an elevation close to 2,000 feet, allowing for a fairly quick ascent of the mountain. But don’t be fooled; Camel’s Hump is a big mountain, and the weather on the summit can be very severe, even on seemingly benign summer days below, so it’s best to be prepared with proper attire."
