Your bucket list needs to contain hikes in and around Fernie, British Columbia, Kimberley, British Columbia and the Kananaskis region. Not only is there an incredible offering of diverse trails for all ability levels but probably some of the best scenery in North America! Some options to get you started. For a starter in make sure that you get settled in with Fernie Accomodations so that you make a weekend of hiking in Fernie as there are many great trails to choose from. Need a scenery fix- start with a lift ride up at Fernie Alpine Resort, to Lost Boys Cafe. From the top of the Timber Express High Speed Quad you have good selection of trails- but the all-time favourite for scenery is accessing the ridge above for an incredible Ridge Walk. Please consult local weather conditions and map before you to make sure this trail is right for you. In Kimberley, British Columbia, if you are just in for the weekend and want a quick and easy hiking or walking area check out the Kimberley Nature Park. The Kimberley Nature Park offers a myriad of trails for all levels and distances. There is a great map available and you can get this at local sport shops. In Kananaskis Country- an easy family hike is up to Elbow Lake- a short hike to a beautiful lake in a high alpine bowl.
Enjoy your hiking this summer!
