Join a Hike to Mount Abraham, 4049', (or Abram according to some locals) located in western Maine, part of the Rangeley-Stratton mountain range. The peak features views in all directions, including Mt Spaulding and Mt. Sugarloaf. According to the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands, Mount Abraham's alpine zone totals approximately 350 acres. This expansive alpine zone is the second largest in Maine... only Katahdin has more. We will hike 8 mile round trip at a moderate pace, elevation gain 2847 feet. The trail is gradual for 3 miles, and steep for 1 mile. The group will meet to start the hike at a reasonable hour in the morning. Participants might have an interest to drive up the day before and stay overnight in the area. Closest town to trail head is Kingfield, ME.
