Comments
Comments: A first time hike of the "Carrabassett Sixpack" . After summitting Abraham we backtracked a bit to the Mt Abraham/A.T. intersection bw to logging roads eventually ending up at the Redington herdpath intersection. This was a great opportunity to hike all six peaks as well as well as hike through some terrific back country moose territory. plenty of blueberries to snack on throughout the logging roads. it was nice crossing paths with a few thru hikers as well as well as another group after descending Redington
