Destination of the Month - Swine Flu
Distance: Approx. 6km
Time: 1-1.5 hr
Spring is a great time to get out for a hike or trail run. Please be mindful of potentially wet trails. A classic Fernie trail that tends to dry out early is Swine Flu. Many will be “green” with envy of the views you can take in at the top.
Park at the Visitor Centre and head up Dairy Run, a fun single track climb with a gentle grade. Cross the cattle grade, turn right and continue up the single track. After crossing the power line head back into the trees for some steeper climbing and switchbacks. At this point, depending on conditions and your energy level, you can continue climbing to the top or descend Far Side. Both are great descents and will take you back to the starting point.
