Location mapSummary
Mt. Abraham, part of the New England 4,000 Footer list, features views in all directions from its bare summit. While the mountain once featured an active firetower, only the frame remains. The peak is also known locally as "Mt. Abram."

Mt. Abraham becomes harder to access in winter, as the dirt road to the Mt. Abraham Trail is generally plowed all the way to the trailhead. In addition, Caribou Valley Road (Caribou Pond Road) is also generally not plowed.

Summit Elevation
4,050 feet

Summit Facilities

The Mt. Abraham Trail, also known as the Fire Warden's Trail, ascends to the summit of Mt. Abraham. The Mt. Abraham Side Trail connects the summit to the Appalachian Trail.
