Mount Abraham via the Battell Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A persistent ascent through four distinct climate zones to the summit of a 4,000-footer with an alpine summit that gives an expansive 360-degree view of the Adirondacks in New York, White Mountains in New Hampshire, and a large portion of the Green Mountain. The Battell Trail (blue blazes) is a popular route to the top of Mount Abraham, particularly if you are on the western side of Vermont. It is named for Joseph Battell,
a conservationist, Morgan horse breeder, and former owner of the Bread Loaf Inn.

Battell was born in 1839 in Middlebury, Vermont, and served both in the Vermont state legislature and as a trustee of Middlebury College. Unmarried, he bequeathed several large pieces of land to Middlebury College and to the State of Vermont and is thus credited with preserving substantial tracts of forest that hikers continue to enjoy."
