A variety of local trail notices and updates have caused the need to clarify the current situation for this summer season. Trails in Fernie are extensive, cherished and a critical part of what Fernie is well known for. Though 2019 will experience a few interruptions most trails are accessible to mountain bike, walk and hike! Continue below for current details and updates.

Every year, I come up with different trails and loops to recommend to locals and visitors. You would think coming up with something new might be difficult, but it’s actually quite the opposite! We are so blessed in this Valley. 

Fernie really does have it all when it comes to summer adventures with your kids. Here are three (or four) of my personal favourites that are a little off the beaten track.

We are so lucky to have such a strong community of volunteers, contractors, local businesses, and funders who support our trail network. The Fernie Trails Alliance is centred on volunteerism.

It’s incredible what a little fresh air and Vitamin D can do for a person. Anyone else notice an increase in energy or desire to get outside when the sun pops out? Let’s go for a walk.

Spring is in the air and it’s a great time to get back outside if you have been hibernating this winter. If you are just getting back into the swing of things it’s a good time to sharpen up your skills.
