At the farthest point of the gravel road, a visitor is rewarded by arriving at Deep Cove. This peninsula has a parking lot, a hand-carry boat access, an information kiosk, and an accessible picnic table overlooking the north end of Rocky Lake.

The Deep Cove trail, which begins behind the kiosk, is an approximately 1 ¼ mile long loop, with the last third returning on the gravel road. Much of the trail skirts the eastern shore of beautiful Rocky Lake. The trails have soft sloping soils in some spots, bog bridging and small bridges in others and some roots and slight inclines to contend with. Very few signs of humans can be seen in any direction.

One bench sits at the water’s edge about a third of the way along the trail.

Loons are frequently heard. Other waterfowl are common and the occasional small fishing boat, kayak or canoe may share these peaceful waters.
