The Lizard

If you’ve been following along since June, and finding all of the donation boxes for our summer Scavenger Hunt, you have reached two beautiful locations so far - The Fairy Creek Falls and the Cedar Forest off of Gorby Trail. You have also found two unique structures - a Mushroom and a Goat, and fantastic opportunities to give back to Fernie’s trail network.

This month is no different, and we hope you enjoy the stunning walk, run or bike through the Old Growth Forest on Island Lake property.

The Lizard on Lazy Lizard
Start on one of the Lazy Lizard trailheads off Fernie park road and hike or bike to the end of the Lazy Lizard trail where you will see the Lizard donation box just before reaching Island Lake Lodge. For additional directions, download the Trail Forks app which has the most up-to-date information on our trail network, and consider making a donation to help volunteers maintain this popular trail!

Please note, this is a two-way trail and shuttling is not permitted for logistical and also safety reasons.

Make sure to continue to Island Lake Lodge to take in the spectacular views, and even enjoy a snack and refreshment as a reward on one of the patios! And don’t forget to check in at Edge of the World for your sticker, and to email proof of completing all four challenges to or to be entered in the grand prize draw!
