Great hike with my wife and daughter
Hiked Battell with my fiancee to the summit. There was a little ring of stones up there that sheltered us from the wind while we stopped for some tea. Nice hike - we'll have to return for the views!
When I first moved to NE and began hiking this one seemed so large...
With Flanders. Up from Lincoln Gap. Enjoyed the rocky trail near the summit. Very windy and cold up top though, we hid in the bushes to escape the wind and catch a snack before going on north towards Mt. Ellen. (Over Little Abe, Lincoln, Nancy Hanks, and Cutts on the way there and back.)
Don't climb up the ski slope! It's way too steep and you'll just be reeeeaaaly sore later.
Seventy four minutes to the summit from Lincoln Gap. After that I bounced over to Ellen via the Long Trail. Best views of the day here.
Snow was fresh but still packed down thankfully. Was hard to find the trail.
Icy as could be
Very nice day, but windy once we got above the treeline. This is an easy hike and great for younger chldren who want to get a nice mountain experience because of 360 degree views.
A coupla weeks back, I climbed Isolation in the White Mountains NH to complete my list of 48 4000' summits there. As I was about to retire to the couch, and after some fine backpacking in the Adirondacks, I happened upon Mount Abraham. Short and sweet. And so beautiful. So I guess a started a new list. The Bobcat Cafe & Brewery in Bristol was a worthy celebration. Camel Hump is my next interest.
Been up it many, many times. Favorite time was hiking up at night, stargazing from summit, camping at Battel Shelter.
I hiked up under one of the Sugarbush chair lifts.
Is there any reason not to bring a large dog to climb Mt.Abraham (via Battell trail)?
Pouring rain and thunder.
Climbed as part of a 50 miler hike when I was in Scouts.
It was an unseasonably cool day. Great hike up from Lincoln Gap, summit views were incredible. The clouds were shooting accross the sky. Visited the plane wreck just off the summit too.
hiked up via battell trail. was on top for an hour and a half, and other than two people passing through for about 10 minutes, the peak was all mine the entire time. great views, lots of sun. this is a great time of year to hike, before the black flies, leaves, and tourists come out. just wish i hadn't forgotten the battery for my camera. :(
Climbed with Ellen via the Long Trail from Lincoln Gap. Plenty of wildflowers along the trail. Still some patches of snow below the summit. Beautiful views of the Lake Champlain valley from the top. Not a lot of people out today.
A good hiking day.
Amazing views but pretty crowded. We started hiking from the Cooley Glen Shelter, went up Abe, back to Cooley Glen, and kept going south to Roosevelt. 18.6 mile day.
