Sabattus Mountain, less than a 1-hour drive from the White Mountain National Forest (WMNF), is the baby of the Oxford Hills family. Amazingly, this hike up a gentle slope leads to dramatic views from the vertical cliff on the mountain’s southwestern face. Bring a wildflower guidebook to enhance a midday hike or a flashlight for a walk at sunset. Head behind the sign and begin an easy climb through logged woods. Logging is big business in Maine: Eighty-seven percent of the state is forested. How many things can the kids name that come from trees? In less than 0.1 mile reach a sign at the loop junction for the summit trail; bear right. Can the kids see any evidence of woodpeckers trying to root out insects living in the trunks of pine trees?
