The Little Mayberry Cove Trail runs approximately two and a half miles along the western shoreline of West Grand Lake. The trail begins at the village of Grand Lake Stream and follows moderately rolling terrain through mossy stands of hemlocks and pines, ending at a quiet cove. Hikers can return on the same trail, or loop back via interior logging roads.

The shoreline trail is intended for foot traffic and day-use only. Tread lightly. The trail also passes near several privately owned camps; please respect the privacy of the owners. Overnight camping is not permitted along the trail.

Trail Tips

Plan Ahead and Prepare
Know your limits – it’s okay to turn back. Your home is the ultimate destination, not the summit.

Trailhead Information

All hikers should park near the dam at the outlet of West Grand Lake.  From the center of Grand Lake Stream village, cross the bridge over Grand Lake Stream and and take the first right onto Shaw Street. Continue a short distance to the dam and the parking lot. Park here; there is no parking available along the road beyond the dam.  From the parking lot, walk the camp road along the west side of the lake uphill to the trailhead on the left. Watch for trail signs and look for yellow blazes.
