Trailheads, measurements, times, distances, and maps are all approximate and relative to the hike(s) as shown below.
The western segment of the loop trail
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.

The trailhead for the trails to the Sabattus Mountain summit
Looking at Pleasant Mountain from the Sabattus Mountain ledges
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 and trailhead will be down the road a bit on the right, marked with a big brown hiker sign.
