Leforge Road begins at the Eastern Michigan University campus in Ypsilanti, and runs north into Superior Township, ending two miles north of Ypsilanti at Vreeland Road.

Within Ypsilanti, Leforge is characterized by apartment complexes, housing both college students and families with children, and is the entrance to Peninsular Park on the Huron River. The Superior Township segment is primarily rural, with the significant exception of the Hyundai Technical Center.
