Addison County Highpoint Trip Report

Mount Abraham

Date: June 30, 2004
Author: Mike Schwartz

We used Fred Lobdell's excellent report and hiked the ridge one-way from south to north, using a car shuttle. We strongly recommend going south to north, saving the steep descent into Appalachian Gap for last. Mount Abraham was well-marked and obvious but Mount Ellen had only the remnant support for a former signpost at its wooded summit. Just a few yards north of (?) is a large, cleared area at the top of one of the many ski lifts in the area, which makes a very comfortable place to have lunch and admire the view.
