Foggy hike up Battell Trail  Sucess!

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!

Cool summit  Sucess!

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.)

BRUTAL!

Don't climb up the ski slope! It's way too steep and you'll just be reeeeaaaly sore later.

Nice hike  Sucess!

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.

#1 4000' in Vermont!  Sucess!

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.

Great peak  Sucess!

Been up it many, many times. Favorite time was hiking up at night, stargazing from summit, camping at Battel Shelter.

Dog question

Is there any reason not to bring a large dog to climb Mt.Abraham (via Battell trail)?

Chilly Summer Day  Sucess!

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.

clear spring day  Sucess!

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. :(

Mount Abraham  Sucess!

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.
