Looking up the trail
Route: East loop of unknown trail, (Sabattus Mountain), west loop of unknown trail
Wanting to stretch my legs on a nice afternoon, I headed up to Sabattus for a short hike. After parking roadside (since the parking lot was not plowed), I headed up the east side of the loop. The packed out trail ended about halfway or so up, resulting in light trailbreaking for the rest of the hike. While I had taken my time in getting there due to the 4:40 sunset, I had forgotten to take into consideration the horizon peaks. Thus, the sun set seconds before I reached the ledges. Nonetheless, the views were great and the horizon colors decent.

Directions to trailhead: From US 302, take Route 5 North to Center Lovell. Take a right onto Sabattus Mountain Road. Head down this road a bit, then take a right onto a dirt Sabattus Trail road. The parking lot (not plowed in winter 2009-2010) and trailhead will be down the road a bit on the right, marked with a big brown hiker sign.
