Formerly known as the Wetland Loop Trail, the Barred Owl Trail can be accessed from the Forest Trail to the left of the wooden bridge or from the eastern end of the Wetland Boardwalk. The trail begins in very open forest changing to hemlocks as the slope ascends. Shortly before rejoining the Forest Trail a small ephemeral stream greets the hiker.

This trail connects to the Forest Trail at both ends, and provides access to the Wetland Boardwalk at its middle.

You can use the Wetland Boardwalk to exit the Woodland Trails and access the Reservoir Loop Trail, entrance road, and lower parking lot or Hillside Trail.
