The township is immediately adjacent to T1 R11 WELS, host to the next northerly section of the AT. Traveling south, hikers continue along the southern shore of Nahmakanta Stream and Pemadumcook Lake. The trail then turns south, skirting the eastern edge of steepest portion of Potaywadjo Ridge to the shore of Lower Jo-Mary Lake. The full ridge extends nearly five miles east to west.
In 1952 the trail followed the path indicated by the red dots on the map. By 2005 the path follows the green dots, closer to Nahmakanta Stream, until it resumes the old route as it turns south.
The southern portion of the township is accessible from Maine Route 11 in T4 R9 NWP, then to the Jo-Mary Road, which begins near Upper Jo-Mary Lake in TA R10 southeast of T1 R11, then by an unimproved road north of Church Pond. The northern portion is essentially inaccessible by road.
About one quarter of the township’s area is water, in the form of Pemadumcook Lake and Lower Jo-Mary Lake.
