Take the trail from the parking lot heading South. You will eventually want to take the Owen Lake Trail off to the left. As you get near the cave area you will need to leave the trail and make your way down into a little valley. It is down in the valley (at the tip of Owen Lake) that you will find the cave entrance. The entrance is at N 45° 19.223 W 066° 03.710

This cave is not a deep cave but it's fairly a fairly open decent down into it. The kids really enjoyed this one. A stream is heard inside the cave running below it. As with every cave please be prepared. Cave maps can be found at the NB Museum on Douglas Avenue in Saint John. Ask for Arseneault, S.P., Schroeder,J., Berube, D., and Albert,R. 1997. The Caves of Southwestern New Brunswick. New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Open File 97-7. I don't think Owens Lake Cave has an entry in this book but it's worth a look.

Directions:

In Saint John, head to Cherry Brook Zoo on Foster Thurston Drive. Just next to the Zoo entrance is a parking lot for the upper trails of Rockwood Park. Park here.
