Fernie Alpine Resort Trails

The trail system at Fernie Alpine Resort is multi-use. The terrain is hilly and forested and offers an excellent workout and wilderness adventure. It is groomed several times per week and generally is very busy with dog walkers, skate skater’s and classical cross country.

The trail head is located in the back-end of parking lot three. From there, follow the trail up the incredibly steep hill that joins the main trail system.

A word of caution. These trails are multi-use, stay to the right and be respectful of others. If you bring your dog, please use a leash and clean up.

The trail system is essentially a 12 km figure eight loop but can be divided into three main components.
