Downeast Lakes Community Forest - Little Mayberry Cove Trail
View Connector Trails
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.
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.
The Downeast Lakes Community Forest is a 55,678-acre community asset and public resource managed by the Downeast Lakes Land Trust who focuses on managing the property for wildlife habitat, public recreation, and a sustainable timber economy.
This trail passes through a property that was acquired in part with funds from the Land for Maine’s Future program. For more information about the LMF program and the places it has helped to protect, please visit the LMF webpage.

Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
Stick to established trails and campsites. If there's no trail, try to walk on rock, gravel, or snow and spread out so that your group doesn't create a trail.
