you can do this with  a dynamic trail created with pagelist.
Add to Site.PageListTemplates:

dynamic trail of form <<prev | Group | next>>
(:if equal {$FullName} {=$FullName}:)[[{>$FullName}|+]](:if:)

and in your page use

(:pagelist trail=GroupName.TrailPageName fmt=#nextontrail :)

(use the name of your trailpage here)

The pagelist will show the next page of the trail as a link.

I added the more general forms for dynamic trails by pagelist
to Cookbook.PagelistTemplateSamples, as #grouptrail and #grouptrail2,
for creating dynamic trail markup for navigating through a group.
The markup to use there, for instance in a GroupFooter, is
(:pagelist group={$Group} fmt=#grouptrail:) for links with page names
of form PrevPageName | Group | NextPageName
and (:pagelist group={$Group} fmt=#grouptrail2:) for links of form
<<prev | Group | next>>
