Humpback Rock

Monticello Trail

“Humpback” is a bit of a misnomer, because hiking actually exercises almost all parts of your body—legs, knees, ankles, arms, hips, butt, abs, shoulders, and neck —instead of leaving you with a, well, humped back. Most folks can climb the four-mile trail in two and a half hours, which is perfect because that’s just what you need to reap the maximum benefits. At the Saunders-Monticello Trail, you can hike or bike the beautiful spot.
