awesome easy trail, pet friendly!

Park at the visitors centre. Snow shoes may be a good idea. Was warm out and the trail was starting to break up. Fell through the snow up to our knees, once up to my hip. Still doable in boots. The falls are beautiful with the snow and runoff.

Steady, strenuous climb to the top of Baldy, but well worth it.

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.

Fast and flowy trail on Mt. Proctor. My go to place if I only have an hour to ride.

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

Great trail under the treeline with waterfalls, leading to ridge views. You'll get a great alternative view of Mt Fernie (the true summit of Mt. Fernie), as well as up close the the Three Sisters. We hike clockwise, through Fairy Creek, to summit, and down via Swine Flu.

Quite technical, and worth taking a pole for the loose rocks.

It would be a slog to get around this trail in single day, and can be done. We chose to camp just before the ridge ascent.

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.

Amazing. From top of swine flu to the top of first ridge its very difficult but gets easier after that as the views are just absolutely amazing. Wear a lot of sunscreen (got very sunburned even after applying it 2 times). We did the loop and there was still a lot of snow and couldn't find the trail so had to make our own and it was one of the scariest scrambles down. So if you are not sure of your skills scrambing down I wouldnt so the loop maybe... But again most beautiful and rewarding hike. took us 7.5 hours to finish the loop

Great hike. Took our 2 kids up to the falls. It was beautiful!!

Beautiful views. Hiked July 5th still snow between the two benches. Recommend hiking poles or bring along your skis

Great short walk/hike. Pretty falls at the end and pretty impressive.
