"Camel's Hump" Camels Hump State Park by Aaron7

Camels Hump State Park Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 9 photos

Camel’s Hump is one of Vermont’s five 4000 footers, tying with Mount Ellen as the third highest in Vermont. It is a part of the Green Mountain Range just south of I-89 between Huntington and Duxbury. It also is a popular symbol of Vermont and its distinctive double hump is visible from most of Northern and Central Vermont. Though the US Treasury Department dropped it, Vermont incorporated its silhouette into all five of the designs it submitted for state quarter design. The top of the highest peak is covered with artic tundra which allows for a wonderful view of Vermont and an interesting variety of vegetation. In addition it has the distinction of being the highest mountain in Vermont without a ski resort which makes it the hike of choice for nature lovers. The myriad trails at its base includes a loop ideal for cross country skiing. On the west slope there is also the remnants of a plane crash from long ago. Rustic lodging is available on the peak.
