11/23 (Sat) Camels Hump Beaver Pond
We will start at the parking lot at the end of Camel’s Hump Road (off River Road, in N. Duxbury) and take the Monroe Trail for about 1.3 miles to the Dean Trail, which climbs an easy grade from its junction with the Monroe Trail and follow about 0.5 mile where there is a nice view of what I thought was the Camel’s Hump summit across an old beaver pond. (It’s actually an unclimbable rocky craig that you walk to the west of if you chose to proceed to the summit.) That is the end of this climb and its back down from there – however others are welcome on their own to continue to the Long Trail at Wind Gap and head north about 1.7 miles to the right, up, up, up to Camel’s Hump summit. Moderate hike. 4 miles. 1350′ elevation gain. Ted Albers, ted@ted-albers.net .
