Hiked in and camped a night at Thunder Meadows in August. It's a steep climb up, that gets a little loose. The cabin is well equipped.

Will definitely tour back here in winter time for some backcountry pow laps.

Would definitely recommend a 4x4 to get to the trailhead off Coal Creek Road. Great views of all the surrounding mountains from the ridge line

It's flat most of the way with a few short climbs. It'd be a cruisy XC bike trail ideal for beginners. Nice views across the valley to Castle Mountain. You can also find the remains of the old Coal Creek town at the end of the trail (though not much left).

The hike itself isn't that exciting, but the remains of the old mine are worth seeing. You could easily bike this trail, though there are some steeper sections.

Watch out for sharp rusty nails in the old buildings. Oh, and we saw a giant rat in one of the buildings, based on how it was looking at us, we think it wanted to eat our faces.

Steep climb, took us an hour and half with camping gear to get to the lake, and 45min back down. WHilst the lake isn't the nicest, is a great short hike. Reckon it'll be great to do when the wildflowers are out in July.

Pretty cool to see sections of the Old Growth Forest along the way, and has a stunning view of Fernie through a tree opening.

Beautiful once you get to the top but it's a steep climb and decent. Took us five hours return to do this hike.
