Marble River, Vancouver Island, BC
Marble River Provincial Park protects the Marble River canyon and the river's estuary at Varney Bay on Rupert Inlet. The 1,419-hectare park, nestled in a beautiful forest, includes a corridor along the Marble River and shoreline strip either side of Quatsino Narrows and Varney Bay.

The Marble River flows through a shallow canyon bordered by forest covered benchlands. The park protects an eagle nesting habitat near Quatsino Narrows, a steelhead fishery and important extensive waterfowl habitat.

Interpretive signs offer information about the forest environment. Salmon spawning viewing areas are located near the trailhead and at Bear Falls, approximately 2/3 of the way down the trail. An interpretive sign and fish ladder are also located at Bear Falls. Visitors should be aware that black bears frequent the park, especially during salmon spawning season.
