Route: West loop of unknown trail, (Sabattus Mountain), west loop of unknown trail

West branch of the trail was mostly dry and in good shape. Opted for a quick out and back rather than doing the east loop. Verified with my phone that the highpoint is indeed east of the ledges on the eastern side of the loop (and thus not the old firetower footings).

Fantastic views south/east/west from the ledges, especially considering the relative ease of the hike. If in the Maine Route 5 corridor for Evans Notch/Speckled area hiking (ie Red Rock, Albany, etc.), this is well worth a quick sidetrip.
