Owen Lake Trail
|Distance||1.1 km one way|
|Estimated Time||30 mins|
|Elevation Change||24 meters|
|Maintenance Rating||well maintained|
This trail is in a section of the park that allows dogs to be off leash.
The trail starts by climbing a hill through a mossy spruce forest. It soon passes the Moose Trax Trail on the left and then travels along a hill passing the Heartrate Hill Trail on the right. The trail then descends down to Owen Lake where there is an access trail that takes you out to the lake. It then climbs through a hardwood ridge before dropping down into a ravine. The rocky ravine holds the stream that flows from Long Lake to Owen and is quite impressive. The trail then climbs up out of the ravine and passes the Sponge Bob Trail on the right before coming to the Long Lake Trail.
For directions to the park check out the Rockwood Park page.
The easiest way to access the Owen 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 550 meters and you will find the trail on your left (just past a bridge that crosses between two lakes). You can also access the trail from the Moose Trax Trail, the Heartrate Hill Trail, the Sponge Bob Trail, or the Long Lake Trail.
