The Moose Trax Trail is one of the longest and most remote trails in the park. It goes between the Long Lake Trail and Owen Lake Trail. From the Long Lake Trail the trail travels through a mostly wet, mossy, black spruce forest. The trail passes by the Newfound Trail and Deer Trax Trail and then travels along a mossy ridge before dropping down into a small valley and passing by an open bog.
The trail travels through more spruce forest before reaching a hardwood stand at the back of Owen Lake. The trail comes close to Owen Lake but never comes out to the shore. The trail curves around the north end of Owen Lake and through another small valley. After climbing up over the next hill it descends down to the Owen Lake Trail.
For directions to the park check out the Rockwood Park page.
You can access the ends of the Moose Trax trail from the Owen Lake Trail and Long Lake Trail. You can get to both from the northern half of the Zoo Trail. On the southern end you can also access it from the Newfound Trail and Deer Trax Trail.
