I did this years ago with my children who were in their teens and I was in better shape. This walk will take time. Take water, snacks and many breaks going up, but it is well worth your time.

I visited the Stowe area during the winter. Most days the sky was overcast and the Camel's Hump could not be seen...but eventually the weather broke and the view of the Mountain was breath taking!

This is my favorite mountain hike. Having no auto road to the summit gives it a different ambiance than those with roads. Many routes to the summit, I like the eastern approach on the Monroe Trail the best.

OK, I'll admit that we were a little unprepared mentally for a six, yes, six hour round trip expedition on the Monroe Trail. We are by no means serious hikers. Luckily, we were dressed appropriately (gorgeous day over Columbus Day weekend) and we had plenty...More

Camels Hump is Vermont's second highest mountain and a stop on the Long Trail. Great views and a variety of hikes from easy to challenging.

I agree. Sneakers are quite adequate however...the trail is a very loose rocky one and some people might need the support of a firmer hiking shoe
