Fairy Creek Falls trail follows Fairy Creek to a picturesque waterfall. The hike is easy and takes approximately 45 minutes one-way (4 km return trip). A newly cut trail leads up to the right at the trail head or you can follow an old dirt non-motorized road. The new trail and dirt road connect back together again and follow an older developed singletrack trail. This trail explores the lower slopes of Mount Proctor and can connect you to the bigger Fairy Creek Trail up to Mount Proctor and also connecting to the base of the Three Sisters/Mt Trinity.
No dogs are allowed on this trail due to it being adjacent to a cow grazing area (chances of seeing any are slim). This trail is not suitable for chariots or strollers, however toddlers tend to enjoy the hike due to its ease and access to explore nature.
Stop and park at the Fernie Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Information Centre on Highway #3 to the east of town. The trailhead is marked with a large sign in the parking lot.
