The trail is located in Fundy National Park, near the Wolfe Lake or west entrance of the park. The main attractions at Fundy National Park are the dramatic cliffs that plunge into the ocean and a shoreline of colorful, rocky beaches. These sights are stunning by sea kayak or a walk on the beach; however, turning inland on a mountain bike, there is thickly forested, rolling wilderness terrain to discover. The Bennett Brook Trail offers an exemplary 6-mile out-and-back ride on a rolling old road. Following the natural curves of the landscape, you will eventually arrive at the shores of Bennett Brook and find yourself surrounded by tall, forested hillsides.

Only technically and physically demanding first 15 minutes after this it is just a nice smooth ride.

First part of the trail ascends from the Point Wolf River Valley, a beautiful crystal clear river that runs down a massive gorge on the NB south coast, and is quite a difficult climb for the first 1.5 km. After that, it joins an old access road or cart path that is used by mountain bikers as well, and is quite an easy walk. The trail traverses some beautiful hardwood stands and provides good cover for hikers, except in a few isolated spots where it opens up in a young softwood section. Saw many garter snakes sunbaking on the side of the path. The trail ends at Higway 114 and just across the road is Bennett Lake where you can stop for a refreshing swim or rent a canoe/kayak for 8 dollars per hour.
