Camel's Hump Road may be inaccessible during the winter months.

Description

This trail branches southeast off the Long Trail. It follows yellow blazes. It follows the edge of the ridge, passing a few viewpoints as it weaves in and out of the woods. It passes a few rocky areas with some very small caves. There is one point where you'll have to leap over a rocky crevasse. The trail reaches Monroe Trail (on the left and right) and crosses it. The trail ascends another 0.5 miles to the junction with the Long Trail, just below the towering summit of Camel's Hump.

Flora & Fauna

Flo: Mountain Ash, Eastern Hemlock, Red Spruce, White Birch.
Fauna: Grouse, Chickadees.
Historical Features: Plane Crash (I couldn't find it, due to snow).
