Long Trail to Mt. Abraham

With the exception of the last few hundred vertical feet (which may require some minor climbing), Mt. Abraham is an easy to moderate hike from Lincoln Gap. Though the trail was quiet in the morning, it seemed like a parade near lunchtime, as I passed likely over one hundred people total.

The bare summit provides views in all directions, as well as easy access to Lincoln Peak (which, due to time and increasing crowds, I decided to skip).
