Among a sea of rounded summits, the distinctive shape of Camels Hump stands out like no other in Vermont. While picturesque from afar, the peak is even more impressive up close from any one of a half-dozen trails that ascend its rocky summit. This recommended loop is a popular choice that showcases successive views from the mountain’s rugged southern ridge, a traverse across a fragile alpine zone, and extended miles through thick forests teeming with wildlife. Choose this hike off-season or midweek to avoid crowds, but no matter when you choose it, you will not go home disappointed.
