Grindstone is so small that it is not included in Ava H. Chadbourne’s volume of Maine Place Names and can go easily unnoticed by the motoring public.

maine-woods-waters-8212-39The Island Falls Trail

The Island Falls Trail offers several side trip opportunities for site seeing.

maine-woods-waters-8209-34The Medway Trail

This route is often referred to as the Katahdin Trail.

maine-woods-waters-8212-37Shin Pond Trail

This view is appreciated through all four seasons, but is most striking in autumn as Katahdin forms the backdrop for the multi-colored and uninterrupted canvas of fall foliage that extends from the monition to Route 11. Turn to the east and experience a panoramic view of rolling hills, forests and fields that nearly equals the westerly view.
