AAA Editor Notes

Camel's Hump State Park can be reached via Camel's Hump Rd. to the park trailhead. Within the undeveloped park is 4,083-foot Camel's Hump. Called “Le Lion Couchant” (the sleeping lion) by French explorers, it has a distinctive double-humped profile—created by glaciers—that graces the Vermont state seal. Camel's Hump is the state's third-highest peak. Scenic trails lead to the summit, where hikers can see rare and fragile alpine vegetation. The Long Trail, which extends the length of the state along the Green Mountains, traverses the park. Pets on leash are allowed. Camping is permitted.
Free. A fee is charged for overnight use of primitive shelters and lodgings, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Hours: Daily 24 hours. Trails are closed during mud season, typically late Mar.-Memorial Day weekend.
