The Long Lake Trail travels through a mixed forest along the east side of Long Lake. It is a wide trail that is well used by mountain bikes. The trail is also used to access several other more remote trails (Shyzer, Newfound, and Moose Trax). The trail undulates between flat rocky hills, and boardwalks in the low wet sections. At the north end of the lake the trail crosses a small bridge over the outlet of the lake. From the bridge you get a view looking down the long lake.
For directions to the park check out the Rockwood Park page.
You can access the Long Lake trail from the Zoo Trail at both ends of Long Lake. The lake is about mid-way between Fisher Lakes Drive and the parking lot off Sandy Point Road. You can also access the trail from the ends of the Owen Lake, Moose Trax, Newfound, and Shyzer trails.
