This relatively short day hike offers outstanding views of Camel's Hump and the picturesque town of Stowe.

The summit of Mount Hunger offers some of the most gorgeous Vermont scenery for a half-day hike. The northwest views of Camel's Hump and the resort town of Stowe are unsurpassed. The hike begins through a dense woods of new growth which blends into a stand of more mature trees. The rocky hills are graced with several fast flowing streams and small coldwater pools. As the trail ascends it turns into a pathway along large boulders. Before reaching the summit, a 1 mile spur trail heads south to the summit of White Rock. The fabulous summit of Mt. Hunger provides 360 degree views with Stow Pinnacle, Mt. Worcester and Hogback Mountain to the north, Woodbury Mountains to the east and on clear days, you can even see White Mountains in the distance. Look south to the Northfield Mountains and other peaks within the Green Mountain National Forest. This summit is a great place to relax and enjoy a picnic lunch. Blueberry bushes abound at the summit.
