Description

From Point Wolfe, the Marven Lake Trail starts to climb as soon as it leaves the parking lot. It is a steady climb gaining over 200 meters in elevation over about a 2 kilometre distance. The trail is an old road and is now more of a wide, gravel ATV trail. After getting to the plateau the trail is relatively flat all the way to the junction with the Bennett Brook Trail, and nearby Chambers Lake backcountry campsite. Turn left at the trail junction and walk another 900 meters to get to Marven Lake. At Marven Lake there is a second backcountry campsite.

Chambers Lake and Marven Lake are shallow lakes that are frequented by moose. They are also home to the white bellied, Four-Toed salamander. These are the only lakes in New Brunswick where it can be found.

Directions

For directions to the park go to the Fundy National Park page.

From the main visitor centre near Alma turn onto the Point Wolfe Road. Drive 8 kilometres to the end of the road and you will find a parking lot on the left (Point Wolfe Campground is on the right). Park here. You will find the start of the trail in the back right corner of the parking lot.

The other end of the Marven Lake Trail can be accessed from the end of the Bennett Brook Trail. You can also access the midpoint of the Marven Lake Trail from the end of the Foster Brook Trail.
