This is a pleasant hike with the route confined mostly to high ground. Where the trail dips to the lowlands, it crosses streams and wetlands on bridges. The forest consists mainly of maples on the ridges, and white birch and balsam fir at the lower, wetter elevations. From the start, the route gradually ascends onto a ridge where an overlook provides views of a valley that makes up part of the headwaters of the Caribou River. The name of this river will always be a testimony to the woodland caribou which once roamed this region until overhunting and destruction of their habitat led to their extirpation.
