Need a break from shopping for the perfect lakefront property near Pleasant Lake in Casco? Then visit Mayberry Hill Preserve, a gem in the western Maine Lakes and Mountains Region.
Jon Evans, Stewardship and Volunteer Coordinator for Loon Echo Land Trust says of the Preserve, "The gentle terrain invites folks of all ages to a thirty minute vacation in the Maine woods."
He is absolutely right. Mayberry Hill Preserve presents visitors and residents with a pleasant stroll over a one-mile loop through a mixed forest.
"This carefully managed forest offers Red oak, White Oak, Pitch Pine, mixed Hardwoods and Maine's signature tree, the White Pine," says Jon.
Quintessential stone walls, a stone cairn, and a couple of stone benches await hikers, skiers and snowshoers on this 160-acre parcel which was donated to Loon Echo Land Trust (LELT) in 1990.
Since 1987 LELT has lived by its motto: Saving Land for Future Generations. Their mission is to protect our most loved lands so that we and our grandchildren will always be proud to call this special place home.
Jon says, "The Mayberry Hill Preserve provides a variety of sensations, i.e. the songbirds that greet you upon entry, the magnificient stonewalls protecting delicate lady slippers, the rich smell of ferns and mosses along the way and in July, mouth-watering blueberries in the field. Winter provides ample tracking opportunities as you snowshoe along the one-mile loop."
So . . . the next time you need a quick pick-me-up or time to ponder lakefront properties, I suggest you head to Mayberry Hill Preserve on Mayberry Hill Road in Casco, where the air is always fresh and pine-scented.
