Native brook trout live in the two ponds at Little Lyford Pond Camps and Lodge. Maybe along the trails you’ll spot the tracks of moose, deer, or fisher cats. At night, off in the distance, perhaps hear the howl of a coyote. Little Lyford Pond Camps and Lodge is the spot used as base camp before heading into Gulf Hagas. Though the “Grand Canyon of Maine” is a must-see, it isn’t the only journey worth making from the camps. Going to Big Lyford Pond and a junction about 0.5 mile beyond it is a rewarding trip, taking you through marshlike areas with views of the scars on Baker Mountain and along the banks of the West Branch of the Pleasant River. Surface quality: Ungroomed, but skier tracked.
