Route: Access road, Long Trail, (Lincoln Peak), Long Trail, (Mt. Abraham), Long Trail, (Lincoln Peak), access road

In the interest of time and wanting to descend without a headlamp, I opted to take the ski trails up to Lincoln Peak and over to Mt. Abraham. The gravel access road (starting to the right of the main chairlift) was generally dry by late afternoon. Having aerial imagery handy is a good idea (e.g. having Google Maps on your phone) so that you don't end up going to one of the subpeak chairlifts at the junctions. My phone determined the ascent to Lincoln Peak was 2.7 miles.

From Lincoln Peak to Mt. Abraham was a combination of wet trail, mud, and slippery rocks. Overall, my phone said from the bottom of the chairlift to Mt. Abraham was just under 3.5 miles.

Clouds rolled over Mt. Abraham, obscuring the sunset. However, the couple dozen less vertical feet on Lincoln Peak made all of the difference, as there was an excellent post-sunset display.

Saw an amazing number of rabbits/hares on the descent - well over a dozen.
