Despite its uncanny name, the Camel?s Hump is one of the most challenging mountains to conquer. It is the third-highest mountain in Vermont and the highest undeveloped peak. Because of its distinctive shape, it is the state?s most recognized geographical feature; it appeared in many postcards and seals.

At 550 million years old, Camel?s Hump is one of the oldest mountains on earth. The mountain is part of the Green Mountains range. The National Park Service created the Camel?s Hump State Park for three reasons. One is for preservation of the rare flora and fauna living in the mountain?s virgin wilderness. Second purpose is for timber reserve management and wildlife development. Lastly, the mountain park was also designed for activities such as farming, hiking, Nordic skiing, hunting and snowmobiling.
