Looking down the Boris Badenov Trail
Route: Ski trails
After finishing Goose Eye as a morning hike, we opted to check out something else in the area. Hunting around for a hiking trail or access road up Mt. Abram, we found a few leads, but none promising enough to follow. Instead, we opted to hike up the ski trails. In previous years, the parking lot had been blocked off with No Trespassing signs, however that doesn't appear to be the case now.
We ascended straight up the main race trail, curving around a few of the access trails to reach the summit (the highpoint of which seemed to be next to the summit patrol shack).
While there were some views from the tops of the ski trails, we found the best views by far to be from a clearing adjacent to a communications tower just west of the summit. From here we had excellent views of the Evans Notch area and Presidentials.
For the descent, we followed a more gradual trail. While it was a nice, quick hike, the bugs were bad - ticks and deer flies in particular.
