Trail shared by Kevin Killingbeck

The Humpback Trail is very strenuous and leads you through the majestic terrain of George H. Crosby-Manitou State Park.

Although dogs are allowed in the state park on a leash, it is not recommended for this trail due to the scrambling and climbing required.

Description

Fittingly named, the Humpback Trail leads you up and down the rolling terrain of George H. Crosby-Manitou State Park. You'll encounter ungroomed and very rocky areas, high grades, and will climb large obstacles. Some trail signs are very faded or missing, keep an eye out for bare sign posts to stay on the trail.
