Rowena Pond

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Rowena Pond (Steve Hart)
Yellow Pond Lilies (Steve Hart)
Poison Oak (Steve Hart)



Rowena Pond is the first of two ponds on the Rowena Plateau Trail. Most of the pond is blocked by an impenetrable mass of Poison Oak, but there's a narrow use path from the main trail to the edge of the pond. There's a wider open area on the east side of the pond. To get there, walk around the far (north) side of the pond to a small rocky shoreline.

The pond blooms with Yellow Pond Lilies all summer and it's a great place to see waterfowl, as well.
