Comments: Wonderful hike to bag 2 4000's having already done Sugarloaf. Beware of false summits on approach to Abraham. Side trail to AT seems to have less foot traffic, so I would definitely recommend either this out-and-back or a traverse to/fro the Caribou Valley Road if you have a car spot. The path was soft underfoot and smelled of pine needles. Encountered a fat-tire-biker crossing the AT who said he was following snowmobile trails. On Spaulding spoke with a gentleman who had completed 29 4000's with his 12-year-old dog.
