The Middleham Trail was built by the Forestry, Wildlife & Parks Division through a 950-acre tract of tropical rain forest that was donated by John D. Archbold to the Government of Dominica, through The Nature Conservancy.

The trail is located in the north-west portion of Morne Trois Pitons National Park, and its main access points are from Providence Estate near the Laudat Road or from Cockrane village.

Starting from the parking lot at the Information Centre at Providence, the trail first crosses the Providence River. It then passes a few cultivations and a massive Maho Kochon tree, before entering the rain forest that is dominated by GomyƩ (Dacryodes excelsa) and ChatannyƩ (Sloanea spp) trees. The Trail also takes you past some fine specimens of Yanga Palm (endemic to the Lesser Antilles) and a set of directional signs, before branching off to the left to one of Dominica's tallest waterfalls, the Middleham Falls. A section of Segment 4 of the Waitukubili National Trail traverses the Middleham area.
