Riders pay $36 for the carpool to the trailhead and back to Boston, which is used to help compensate the drivers on gas & travel.

2. Event description:
Camel's Hump is the third highest peak in the Green Mountains of Vermont at 4,083 feet. We will start at the Burrows trail parking lot off Camels Hump Road, hike up the Burrows trail for 2.1 miles where we will come to a junction with the Long Trail. Turning right onto the Long Trail and hike for 0.3 miles and we will be on the summit of Camels Hump! depending on the snow pack. The summit offers 360 views of the Adirondacks to the west, the Green Mountains, and the White Mountains to the east. We might continue on to the 1944 plane crash site,depending on timing, snow pack and its visibility.


Previous hiking experience is required, preferably with at least 1,500 ft. of elevation gain. However, no previous winter hiking experience is needed, as long as you have the proper gear.
