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."
