“A rolling trail connecting the Katahdin area with the trails near the Traveler.”— Bryan Gagner
You'll cross Howe Brook about 2.5 miles into the trail, but that's the only major crossing that you'll come to. This trail continues to a junction with the Center Ridge Trail, near Lower South Branch Pond. You'll have glimpses of the pond on your way. At this point, you'll be following along the western slope of the Traveler, which might give you a bit of a hint about what's to come if you're continuing on.
From the Lower South Branch Pond, the trail levels out, and you'll continue on some slightly rolling terrain until it reaches it end point at The North Traveler Trail.
