Attracts more like 6 miles from the parking lot to the peak and back. The 1st mile and last half mile are enough to wear you out! Definitely something that is worth doing in all different seasons as you get a different feel for the trail depending on the season. One of our favorites

Really lovely hike. The beginning is quite steep (I remember thinking "this is moderate?!") but it flattens out substantially as you hike along the ridgeline for the majority of the trail. There is a short scramble at the end, which pays off in great views. The trail definitely averages out as a "moderate" hike, but would perhaps more accurately be categorized as "hard" for the first half mile and last quarter mile, and "easy" for the middle part.

This hike took me about 3 hours round trip.

Nice steady climb to an (almost) 360 view - and not very crowded at the top. Don’t miss the wreckage of a small plane, off a little side trail slightly north of the summit of Abraham. I went another 3.3 miles north on the Long Trail and hit Mt. Ellen and several other peaks, with some nice views from the Sugarbush ski slopes, and then backtracked.

I liked this trail a lot. Pretty steep in some areas with a couple places to scramble near the top. 360 views at the top just above the tree line. Beautiful!

Great trail with spectacular 360-degree views at the top above the tree line. Some rock scrambling near the summit.
