trails

We are so lucky to have such a strong community of volunteers, contractors, local businesses, and funders who support our trail network. The Fernie Trails Alliance is centred on volunteerism.

The Columbia Basin’s many remote recreation sites and trails are beautiful and worthy destinations. This summer up to 15 students will be hired to help improve various backcountry sites over the summer, supported by $1.5 million over three to five years from the Trust.

Fernie is an active community with active people. Bike trails for the mellow wanderer, single-track for the extreme downhiller but there's still room to grow when it comes to trails. Fortunately, this growth comes in the form of the Fernie Valley Pathway (FVP).

Spring is in the air and it’s a great time to get back outside if you have been hibernating this winter. If you are just getting back into the swing of things it’s a good time to sharpen up your skills.

Trails connect our communities, take us to spectacular locations and provide fresh-air opportunities to get moving. Around the Columbia Basin, 29 projects will be adding to or improving the region’s trails, with over $484,000 from Columbia Basin Trust’s Trail Enhancement Grants.

We are so lucky in Fernie and to have a wonderful outdoor playground. There are so many options to play outside during the winter season. When I think of “play” I envision fun, fresh mountain air, biking, and spending time with my dog Chloe on the trails. The new Inclusive Trail is a great one to take your pet along. It’s nice and wide and has a gentle grade.

Whether biking to work, hiking peaks or walking pets, Columbia Basin residents prize the trails in our communities and surrounding areas. To improve these paths and support healthy outdoor lifestyles, Columbia Basin Trust is launching its new three-year, $1.5-million Trail Enhancement Grants.

Join the Fernie Trails Alliance for their AGM. Time to reflect on our successes for 2018 and learn about what's coming up for 2019.

Trail Razr III is going to be just as much fun (if not more) and they hope they can BEAT the $22,000 that they made in 2017. All funds go to the Fernie Trails Alliance and are used to build and maintain our amazing trail network. 

Our trails do not build themselves. It is only because of our strong community of passionate volunteers and contractors that we have the amazing trail network we have in Fernie.
