Are your curious about hiking and where to take in the some of the best views in Fernie? A great option is Fernie’s newest trail found at Island Lake Lodge.

My bucket list is made of mountains. Mountains I've yet to climb but hope to, ones with deep-blue lakes and jagged ridges, where the summit leaves you feeling infinite.

Here's a little something to get you stoked on the summer season.
