Access to this trail is 19 km sourth of Temagami.
From Highway 11 Travel east on Rabbit Lake Road (please note that this road is very rough). Take the left fork at 35.7 km.
After fording Owain Creek, the trail travels over rolling rocky ground covered with red and white Pines.
Hikers can enjoy several topographies paralleling Owain Creek.
Pine vistas, deep valleys and the fjord-like Lake Temiskaming are found along the 500-foot descent from the upland of Temagami to the old trade highway of the Ottawa Valley. The west trailhead starts in red pine, white pine, fir, white spruce and white birch and enters the moister lowland forest near Lake Temiskaming of ash, cedar, maple and yellow birch. The Lake Temiskaming trailhead has a beach.
Grand Campment Bay, where the eastern trailhead is located, was a brigade stop on the old trade route between James Bay and the St. Lawrence. This trail is very isolated and when you get to Lake Temiskaming you will likely not have seen or heard anyone. This is a unique trail in Temagami.
