Mèmak Preserve, North Yarmouth


  • Preserve Size: 46 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 1-mile loop
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: forest, stone wall

I love that this Royal River Conservation Trust preserve has a Native American name: Mèmak is a Wabanaki word for a pileated woodpecker. It’s an important acknowledgement of the first people who took care of this land.

When I visited Mèmak in the winter of 2020, the preserve had a few snowmobile/ATV tracks cutting across it, and you could do an easy 1-mile loop through the woods. The trail follows a mossy old stone wall for a ways.

Directions: The preserve is at 78 Lufkin Road, in North Yarmouth. There is a small parking lot on the left shortly before the power line.


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
