T9 R9 WELS

A Maine Forest Service Station on the Pinkham Road in the south of the township, is adjacent to Brown Brook which crosses the road there.  It seems to be a remote outpost with no other station for many miles. Presumably the brook would provide water for the resident fire engine.

The Pinkham logging road briefly crosses the southeast corner, while the Pelletier logging road runs east-west across the township in the north around Mooseleuk Mountain.

Mountains

The Mountain anchors a ridge that runs southwest with Willard Mountain in the middle and Norway Bluff at its end.

All three mountains are over 2,000 feet elevation.  A dirt road travels along the western base of the ridge.  The east has a more primitive road/trail about half way beginning at Pelletier Road near Mooseleuk Mountain.

Campsites

On the Road south of the Mooseleuk Dam, Smith Brook crosses with its campsite. It is a single campsite with a picnic table, a fire ring, and a privy.  While accessible by vehicle, a camper trailer is not recommended.

The township is within the management area of North Maine Woods, Inc., which authorized the campsite.
