A mom and her two and six year old children left the Burrows Trail head in Huntington for a hike to the summit of Camel's Hump.
They inadvertently missed the Burrows Trail turn at the "Hut Clearing" and continued north on the LT down the Bamforth Ridge toward Duxbury.
Initial call to 911 was made at 10:00 PM.  Stowe Mountain Rescue called in at 1:00 AM as backup.  Vermont State Police and Waterbury Backcountry Rescue located hikers at 4:30 AM.  They had started a fire and all were ambulatory and in good condition.
