Mount Fernie Trail is a 4.2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Fernie, BC that offers the chance to see wildlife. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking.
This is actually a seriously strenuous hike. It climbs 1,000m in only 4km, so expect a good workout. Stunning 360 views from the top, where there is a little wooden bench and friendly ground squirrels to relive you of your granola bars.
We parked at the end of Canyon Trail and found the trailhead on the left after a short walk. There's a bench at the top with some amazing views on both sides of the mountain. The last section of the trail has loose rocks and may be trickier for beginner hikers. All and all it's a great hike and we were pooped by the time we got back down.
