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.

We went up Sabbatus mountain on Veteran’s Day. Leaves down and a bit slippery on a few icy spots and with leaves. There is a sheer cliff on top so use care with kids. Dogs should be on a leash at top. Westerly views but trees on summit are growing in.

best view out of all the easy to moderate hikes in the area! it is a nice incline the entire trail but completely doable for beginners if you take your time! the trail can get a little confusing - just make sure to follow yellow marks on trees! happy trails!

Great hike for kids and people who like a short hike with great reward. The views are really nice and the benches at the top are great. I took the trail to the right after losing the trail when I attempted to hike starting out going left, I had to back track and take the trail to the right.

Easy, quick hike through the forest with great views from the ledges up top.
Great for when you're short on time. Very kid and dog friendly.

Great short little trail with a hell of a view for the effort. Good for hikers of all ages and skill level.

Hard to beat these views for such an easy hike in a mere hour and a half. Bradbury Mountain in Pownal, Maine, and Monument Hill in Leeds, Maine, are comparably easy and rewarding with views.

This was a very nice trail, easy for kids to go along. And the view at the top is great, and there is a couple of benches at the top to sit down and relax.

Easy hike to the summit and back, I recommend taking the trail to the right, the left one is not clear and we got off track going that way. I love the benches and the views are amazing.

A wonderful loop on a warm winters day. No snow yet, but it would make a great snowshoe. The summit ledges are picturesque. And what a perfect chunk of Quartz on the east end of the summit ridge! I've never seen that big!

The views are amazing. I love the benches up top.

We did have our 3 yr old daughter with us and we started to the left. Recommendation: start to the right if you have small children. It's more direct. And The left has a lot more roots and rocks they can trip on. The right is a bit cleaner. The views were worth it!

Great hike. My wife and I hiked up with our 15 month old twins on our backs and our 4 year old hiked up on her own. Trail is not marked at all. But is so well traveled you can't miss it. One of the best views for a small hike.
