Camel's Hump View Trail

Camel's Hump View Trail Professional Review and Guide

"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."
