Description:

Bag a 4,000 footers in one weekend, Mount Abraham, and Spaulding Mountain. Mount Abraham is 4,050 ft., Spaulding is 4,009 ft., The plan is to camp Friday and Saturday night, with hiking to Mount Abraham and Spaulding Mountain on Saturday. Mount Abraham has incredible 360 views of the surrounding mountain ranges and has one of the largest alpine zones in Maine, followed by hiking to Spaulding Mountain afterwards.. We’ll hike back the same way. On Sunday, we can either go swimming on a nearby lake, do a smaller hike on an easier mountain or check out some waterfalls before heading back.

We'll be camping at Rangeley Lake State Park. Reservations have already been booked and can accommodate 2 vehicles and 6 people. Non-carpoolers will be responsible for their own accommodations if we end up having 2 drivers on this adventure.
