Description

The trail starts at the kiosk, visible from the road. Following the main loop trail clockwise, there is a downhill slope for a third of a mile. Look for history as you walk. Stone walls and barbed wire fences are evidence of agricultural uses in previous centuries. As the trail starts to go downhill more steeply, it passes a rocky outcrop on the left, a former quarry pit where foundation stones were cut from ledge. The second leg of the trail is relatively flat, but with uneven footing over rocks and tree roots. You will see logging trails and other evidence of recent forestry activities. The third leg of the loop also has sections of uneven footing. As you near the end of the loop there are logging trails to the field, where a few apple trees, in the field and adjacent woods, are all that remain of former orchards.

Trail Tips

Minimize Campfire Impacts
Follow the Maine Forest Service fire regulations and check the current fire danger level before you go camping.

Trailhead Information

From US Route 302 in Raymond, turn onto ME Route 121/Meadow Road and proceed for 8.5 miles to Casco Village. Turn right onto Mayberry Hill Road (just after the Village Church). Follow it 1.5 miles and turn left at the top of the Hill to stay on Mayberry Hill Road. The preserve is just over a quarter mile on the right. Vehicles should park along the side of the road at the trailhead, with the wheels well off the roadway. Use caution here, as a blind curve makes it difficult for other motorists to see.

From Naples, take ME Route 11/Poland Springs Road from US 302 for 4.0 miles to ME Route 121; take a left and continue another 1.7 miles to Casco Village. Follow directions above from here.
