Trek through the rolling Fundy Highlands to two shallow lakes, Chambers and Marven Lake, which are a favorite summertime hangout for moose.

Both Marven and Chambers Lake are provisioned with one backcountry campsite each that are accessed by the 8.5 km Marven Lake Trail. This wide, gravel trail shares its first kilometer with the Goose River Trail, and is well suited for hikers and mountain bikers alike.

Once at Marven Lake, keep your eyes open for the white belly of a Four-Toed salamander; it is the only known lake in New Brunswick to host this unique species.

Be Prepared!
  • Know your physical limits; Fundy’s wilderness is famous for its rugged cliffs and river valleys. Choose a trail that is challenging but enjoyable for you.
  • Pack for comfort and safety: A sweater and a windbreaker are good insurance against variable weather. We recommend footwear with good traction and support. Pack fresh water and a snack, even if you’re planning a short hike.
  • Plan your route and stick to it. Let someone know where you plan on hiking and your estimated time of return.
  • For your own safety and to preserve the ecological integrity of our Park, stay on marked trails.
  • Leave no trace! Please carry out all garbage, yours and any you may find on the trail.
