“A less traveled trail traversing the ridgeline south of Mt. Cardigan.”— Simon Pendleton
The trail bypasses the summit of Brown and Church mountains before intersecting the Woodland Trail. Further on the trail goes over Grafton Knob and then Crane Mountain, passing through a few cleared sections marked with cairns. A steep climb on Crane Mountain puts you atop the ridge proper and from there you'll go over Orange Mountain, intersecting the Vistamont Trail.
Continuing on the trail will climb to the southern shoulder of Mt. Cardigan, cutting across the West Ridge Trail before ending at a T-intersection on the South Ridge Trail.
