Trails And Touring In Fernie
Fernie, British Columbia is located in the idyllic Canadian Rockies near the Lizard Range. One of the reasons that Fernie is a popular outdoor vacation spot in both the summer and the winter is the extensive network of trails that crisscross the area. These trails exist in large part due to the work and advocacy of the Fernie Trails & Ski Touring Club. What started off as a friendly group of skiers in the 1970's has turned into one of the more important community organizations in Fernie. The group maintains non-motorized trails throughout the area to help promote public access and public recreation in the area. What this means for visitors and locals alike is that no matter what time of year you visit, there are plenty of trails and wilderness to explore.
