Lincoln Gap, is a mountain pass in the Green Mountains of Vermont. The highest point of the pass is located in the Town of Lincoln, Addison County, about 0.5 mi west of the boundary between Addison and the Town of Warren in Washington County.

On the east side, Lincoln Gap is drained by Lincoln Brook, which drains into the Mad River, the Winooski River, and into Lake Champlain. To the west, the gap is drained by Cota Brook, which drains into the New Haven River, Otter Creek, and into Lake Champlain. In turn, Lake Champlain drains into the Richelieu River in Québec, thence into the Saint Lawrence River, and into the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.

The Long Trail, a 272-mile (438-km) hiking trail running the length of Vermont, crosses Lincoln Gap between Mount Grant, 3 mi (5 km) to the south, and Mount Abraham, 1.5 mi (3 km) to the north.
