Two Land for Maine’s Future program grants enabled the state to purchase 177 acres on and around Sabattus Mountain in Center Lovell, protecting hiking access to Lovell’s highest peak. A one-mile trail leads up to the 1,253-foot summit, where immense cliffs mark the southwestern side–providing clear views out to the White Mountains and Kezar Lake region.
Sabattus Mountain is now owned and managed by the Bureau of Parks and Lands.
