McConnell Brook rises near Orcutt Mountain in the northwest of the township and joins the Machias River (North) in the southeast. The interior has many unimproved dirt logging roads accessible from either Pinkham Road in the southeast or Realty Road in the north.

Just beyond the Machias River (North) bridge, the Jack Mountain Road begins on the right at the fork in the Pinkham Road. Pinkham turns south to T10 R7 WELS; Jack Mountain heads northwest to T11 R8 WELS.
