Hiking in Fernie is nothing short of spectacular. Many routes can be accessed from locations just outside of town or even within it. Fernie Trails and Ski Touring Club works to promote, develop, and maintain much of the hiking trail system in the area.
As hiking in summer has such congruence with ski touring, many areas have multi-season use and are a natural fit for the efforts of the Fernie Trails & Ski Touring Club. Continuing to promote responsible, non-motorized trail access for these popular hiking routes is a core goal of the FT&STC.
There are significantly difficult hikes as well as more moderate adventures. Areas with well-worn and marked trails include Island Lake Resort and Mount Fernie Park, Mount Fernie, Mount Hosmer, Three Sisters, Fairy Creek, Mount Proctor, Coal Creek, and Castle Mountain.
Many popular routes such as the Three Sisters trail, The Mountain Lakes Trail, Cabin Bowl Trail, and the Coal Creek Heritage Trail, were directly developed with the help of members of the Fernie Trails & Ski Touring Club.
Proceeds from the Fernie Trail Map go directly to benefit the Fernie Trails & Ski Touring Club, and their stewardship efforts on these trails. Purchase one online.
