Located approximately 25 miles south of Burlington, Vermont in Chittenden County, Huntington is a beautiful mountainous town with many streams and rivers, the largest being the Huntington River. Huntington is the home of Camels Hump, the third-highest mountain peak in Vermont, and the image chosen to represent Vermont on the State Quarter. From the top of Camels Hump is a breathtaking view of the Champlain Valley, from which (on a clear day) you can see as far as Montreal. (View Map)
The Long Trail runs through Huntington, and across the peaks of Camels Hump and another prominent peak, North Mountain. So much of Huntington’s land is mountainous that most of the peaks have not been officially named. Camel’s Hump State Forest takes up much of the eastern portion of the town, making Huntington the perfect place to enjoy outdoor sports like running, hiking, mountain biking, or cross-country skiing.
According to the 2010 Census, Huntington has a population of approximately 1,940 people. The Town of Huntington is in the Chittenden East School District. Brewster Pierce Memorial School (Grades K – 4) is in Huntington Center.
