Fernie's elevation of 1,009m/3,310ft gives hikers a kind of boost – those mountaintops seem somehow more accessible – and there is a trail for every level of fitness.
Getting up into the alpine can be as easy as taking the chairlift at Fernie Alpine Resort, or as tough as climbing to the top of Ghostrider Peak. Let's start with easy...
The City of Fernie has a Recreational Trail Committee mandated to provide a "quality network of trail systems for pedestrians, cyclists, snowshoers and cross-country skiers." Pick up the Fernie Recreational Trails brochure from the Visitor Centre and explore urban pathways, some of which are part of the TransCanada Trail.
Fairy Creek Falls
Starting from the Visitor Centre just north of town, this 2.3km/1.5mi trail crosses an open meadow, continues along the lower forested slopes of Mt. Proctor, then drops down to the edge of Fairy Creek. This easy hike involves an elevation gain of just 90m/295ft. Follow the blue flagging tape and watch for wildlife.
