Hiking, Biking & Paddling

Hiking

Transition Trail: Marten River’s Transition Trail offers a moderate hike that is five kilometers long and will take approximately two hours to complete. The trail takes you through a variety of forest types from mature pine stands to a Black Spruce bog.

Biking

Biking is allowed on park roads.

Paddling

Marten River itself provides lots of opportunities to explore, with numerous bays and long stretches of shoreline. As the park is the southern gateway to the Temagami region, there are many canoeing opportunities close by. Nearby, Kenny Forest Provincial Park has a number of large, interconnected lakes to paddle, and for whitewater enthusiasts, the Temagami River is a great canoe or whitewater kayak route, either for the day or overnight.

Many more canoe route options can be found in the Temagami region. The area includes a number of other provincial parks, and with adjacent Crown land includes 2400 km of interconnected waterways. Canoe route maps of the many routes are available for purchase.
