Directions to Summit Loop Trail

Traveling south on Route 5 into Lovell, the Sabattus Mountain Road is on the left. This is easily recognized, because there is a sign for the hiking trail on the right, pointing toward the road.

Travel down the Sabattus Mountain Road until you get to a right hand turn that is a dirt road named Sabattus Trail Road. Follow this road until you get to the trail parking area, which is on the right, and labeled.

Hike Report

Starting out at the parking lot, you don't travel very far before you reach a fork in the trail. Go left, or go straight ahead - either way you'll get to the summit. I don't really think there's much difference between the two - the trails were very similar, and we could have done the loop in either direction without any problem. Laura voted for clockwise, so we turned left.

The trail was muddy in places (not surprising, considering we'd had over two inches of rain the day or two prior to hiking!)

It was not overly steep, but just steep enough to get our hearts pumping, since we tend to hike at a pretty good pace.

The summit consists of a couple ledges with views toward the south and east, and a little toward the west.

I did read in one hike report that although the hike is easily doable by children, care should be taken since there are open ledges with steep drop-offs. This is true.

There are a couple benches at the summit, so you can sit and enjoy the view.

The hike down was uneventful, other than trying to dodge a couple muddy spots on the trail!


Easy hike, good for families.


The hike is about 1.5 miles round trip, and probably took us about an hour.

About the author
Most of my hiking happens in the North East region of the United States. I don't hike as much as I used to, now that we have a baby in the house, but I do love to get out and explore now and then! If I've provided incorrect info in any of my reports, please drop me a comment so I can fix it! (more...)
