If you're interested in a half the day hike try trails such as Old Growth Trail to Island Lake Lodge, Mt Fernie or Castle Mountain. For those interested in a bigger excursion plan a full day hike or more on Heiko's Trail or up to Mt Proctor. You can also enjoy lift-access hiking at Fernie Alpine Resort late June to early September.

Many of our trails are accessible even in the winter for hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and fatbiking.
