Mount Abraham Professional Review and Guide

"A moderate hike up a 4,006-foot peak, complete with crystal clear views, a camping shelter, and a 1970s plane wreck to explore. The hike to Mount Abraham’s inspiring panoramic views has a consistently moderate grade, with very few steep sections, making this a great option for young families up for a bit of a challenge. If you can, spend the night on the
trail at Battle Shelter.

While the trail and shelter are on National Forest property, the shelters in this area are all staffed and managed by the Green Mountain Club (GMC). With an outhouse, dependable water supply, and sheltered camping, Battle Shelter is a great spot for a first family backpacking trip. It can be done as an out-and-back overnight trip, or can be combined with other shelters to the north and south. See GMC’s The Long Trail Guide for more long-distance backpacking options."

"Hike a section of the celebrated Monroe Skyline to find rare arctic plants and 360-degree views on this rocky summit."

"Mount Abraham provides one of the finest views along Vermont’s scenic Long Trail. From just over 4000 feet in elevation, the small summit area is just above tree line and is surrounded by a 360-degree view that encompasses much of the state, as well as the high peaks in New York and the rugged mountains of New Hampshire. Beginning from the highest public road crossing of the Long Trail, this 5.2-mile round-trip hike is an enjoyable trek to one of the state’s highest mountains."
