Fernie Trails Alliance

It takes a lot of spirit to maintain our trail network. With over 300 kilometres of trails, we could not maintain and build our trails without the dedication of our volunteers.

When you think of culture things like art, heritage and music might come to mind. In Fernie biking is actually also a huge part of our culture.

The Fernie Trails Alliance (FTA) is working hard on Fernie’s potential as a world class trail network. We currently have over 300 kilometres of trails plus the trail network at Fernie Alpine Resort (FAR). Our trails have a variety of terrain and are suitable for a wide range of ages and abilities.

On May 27, 2019 the Fernie Trails Alliance (FTA) announced that a re-route is in the works for one of Fernie's popular trails, Swine Flu.

As the Fernie Trails Alliance launches its new Fernie Trails Pass and website this spring, they wants trail users, visitors and residents alike, to understand what they do, the member clubs they represent, and how alongside land owners, they work together to ensure Fernie's trail network is the best it can be now and for the forseeable future. Here is short and fun video by Aere Films featuring FTA Chair Krista Turcasso trying to break it all down. "And a bunch of other stuff..."

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. 

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.
