At 4006 feet, Mt. Abraham is famous for it's low timberline and 360 degree panorama of the Green Mountains. The views from this summit range the the towering Adirondacks which lie over Lake Champlain, the northern and southern sections of the Green Mountains, the foothills to the west and the White Mountains to the east. The mountain's amazing views, treeless top and elevation over 4000 feet make this mountain a magnet for hikers, so be prepared for crowd.
There are two trails to the summit from the south. The Long Trail which leaves Lincoln Gap is 2.6 mile trail, 1600 feet elevation gain and a mostly class 1 rating with one steep section being a class 2 scramble. The Battell Trail has more of an (2550 ft.) elevation gain and distance (2.9 miles) but retains the same ratings as the Long Trail from Lincoln Gap. The Battell runs into the Long's Trail and the last 0.9 miles to the top of Mt. Abraham is on the Long Trail.
