Abercrombie Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide

"One foot! Just 1 lousy foot is all that keeps this lofty peak from being eastern Washington’s highest summit. That honor goes to nearby Gypsy Peak. Still, this summit is impressive—the views are grand, the meadows resplendent! And Abercrombie is a lot easier to get to than Gypsy. So although this peak is 1 foot shy of being eastern Washington’s number one summit, it’s still a great feat to tackle, by two feet or four.

The hike to the 7308-foot summit is short, but steep in sections. Except for a few rocky places near the top, the tread is good. For the first mile water is readily available, but beyond that it’s a pretty dry hike. Hike this on a cool day, especially when the skies are clear. The view from this summit is extensive, from the Cascades to the Selkirks, the Monashees to the Purcells, the Pend Oreille River to the Columbia, and the Kootenay Valley all the way to the Columbia Plateau."

Good short hike. Strenuous, but not too long for out of shape people to attempt. Seems a little longer than the 3+ miles though.
