Starting in South Lagrange, the trail rolls north through heavily wooded areas with occasional glimpses of houses or small farms through the trees. After 4 miles, the trail passes a half mile east of the old lumber mill town of Lagrange. The trail continues north along Birch Stream and later Cold Stream, with opportunities for waterfowl and beaver sightings. 6 miles north of Lagrange the trail passes through Medford Center.

The section of the trail managed by the Maine Bureau of Public Lands ends at Paddy Hill Road in Medford. However, local ATV and snowmobile clubs maintain a trail along the old railroad corridor north of Medford, which crosses the Piscataquis River via a 100 year old railroad trestle bridge one mile north of Medford Center, then continues another 4.5 miles to Schoodic Lake in Lake View Plantation.
