The Harrigan Lake Trail is a short trail that travels through mainly softwood forest along the shore of Harrigan Lake. The trail is lined with Labrador Tea along the lake, and moss as you take the loop away from the lake. The roots of large spruce keep the trail intact. Near the back of the loop the trail travels through a field of alder bushes before returning to the shore of the lake. There are nice lookouts along the shore. The trail then re-enters the forest through a tunnel formed by a band of cedar trees. Look to the back of the lake and you will see cliffs and a large beaver hut.
For directions to the park check out the Rockwood Park page.
The easiest way to access the Harrigan Lake Trail is from the parking area on Sandy Point Road, between the golf course and the Cherry Brook Zoo. Walk on the Zoo Trail for 400 meters and you will find the trail on your right (just before a bridge crosses between two lakes).
