Hiked these mountains starting from the Battell Trailhead located in Lincoln. The trail steadily climbs 2.5 miles through mixed forest to join up with the Long trail about 0.8 miles from the summit of Mt Abe. At the Battell shelter I camped overnight and ascended the summit fairly easy in 45 minutes in the morning. Abe offers stunning views and makes for a great jumping off point for the 5.2 mike trek along the Monroe Skyline to Mt Ellen. The ridge line crosses many smaller but beautiful peaks in their own right— Lincoln Peak 3975 feet, Nancy Hanks @ 3812 feet, Castle Rock at the top of Sugarbush ski lift, and Cutts peak @ 3940 feet. After a long ridgeline hike of undulating Climbs and descents you finally arrive at the tabletop summit of a viewless and anticlimactic Ellen. Not a great reward for all the effort . However a 100 feet further off the summit , the ski lift platform gives you a pretty great view of the Appalachian gap, and Mad River and Sugarbush Ski resorts in the valley. The return trip will leave you feeling exhausted , but Abraham is a great resting point before heading back down into the valley at the trailhead. Overall the trip was 15.2 miles out and back in a total logged time of 11 hours on the trail. Make sure you bring plenty of water and moleskin!

Great hike up Sugarbush ski resort. It’s nice to have the choice of either taking an easier/more mellow route or one more strenuous. Worthwhile views from the top of Abraham as well as all crossings with ski trails (tops of ski lifts). The hike down is quite steep towards the top, though instead of taking black diamonds all the way down you have the option to hike down ‘Troll Road’ which switch backs down the mountain.

I loved this trail! Trailhead was easily found on Jim Dwire road in Bristol, parking on side of street. The beginning of the hike is fun and isn’t too steep, it’s pretty gradual, and the trail was relatively dry, but a good amount of bugs this time of year (as you ascend the bugs are not a problem). When you reach the LT go right and continue to the summit. The beginning section of the LT did have plenty of blow downs but not difficult to go over or under them, but it was fun and rugged. 2 hours up, and just under 2 down. Definitely will become a favorite of mine

A nice trail up mount Ellen. Seeing maple lines were cool. Trail is not too steep or rocky.

One of my favorite fall hikes. The smell in the air and the views of the colors in the trees are unforgettable!

Took the Long Trail from Lincoln Gap. Moderate hike with some great views! Can break either Abraham or Ellen up for a quick day hike.

This place is gorgeous! If your start your climb from sugarbush resort it's a hell of a climb up. Once you get to the mountain ridge its a breeze. Go to mount Abraham when you do this hike it's totally worth it!

I just did to mount Abraham then back down. Easy and rewarding hike with great views.

Absolutely beautiful. Very cool seeing the maple syrup lines on you way up. A couple of challenging spots.

Our measure of the trail was 5.1 miles, round trip. The last mile of the trail was pretty icy today. Micro spikes helped. View from Long Trail quite lovely.
Trail passes through very large working sugar bush.
Not a heavily travelled trail. Only crossed paths with two other sets of hikers.

Such an incredible hike! I started out late morning and the lighting was just so incredible, around ever corner the light was coming through the trees so beautifully! Beautiful mosses along the trail, and a very rugged trail. I enjoyed the variation in terrain from the gradual, smooth start to the winding, steep rocky parts towards the top! An all around challenge, with beautiful views both at the summit and along the way!

Great skiing and amazing views!

i hiked this trail last Saturday morning. It was a nice quiet 3400 feet climb with a great view. The top leads to many other trails to explorer. unfortunately i didn't pack any food to continue hiking. There were some steep climbs here and there, but leveled out with good moments in flatness and good places to enjoy the environment. its a great hike. wear shoes for the mud and make sure you have a hiking stick or make one from the woods around. good time. i'll do it again sometime.
