Great for the family, 5yo on a 20inch bike, wife on a hard tail and 8month old on my back. 5yo needed towing up but we all LOVED it

Great flowy ride. All dry. Rode with a (confident) 6 and 8 year old and would do it again. Lazy lizard connector leads you right into the campground.

Trail Lazy Lizard
This might be one of my favourite trails. Solid climb up, beer and burger at Island Lake Lodge at the top, fast and flows descent back down. Loved it!
Dry and wildlife free to the eye, despite a sign for an Aggressive Grizzly Bear on a trail above (Tamarack??).

Trail Project 9
Blue trail, definitely not black. Mellow enough that it would be appropriate for a new rider. Pretty flat so more of a high speed burner, roots for trail interest. Fun roller section near the bottom but overall kinda meh

Great trail! We did it as a downhill, parking one vehicle at the lower island lake lodge parking lot and drove up to the lodge. Stunning views, old growth cedar, whoops, bridges, roots, mud, etc. Had a blast!

Trail Project 9
We stopped in Fernie on a little road trip. Some locals recommended Project 9 and now we know why. We are from the North Shore and this trail was definitely North Shore style. Super fun and flowy with the perfect balance of roots.
And the views were spectacular!
We had an obligatory stop at Fernie Brewing Co. and celebrated the ride with a Project 9 Pilsner!

Great trail --- the first recommendation from the locals for a moderate difficulty but fun ride. It's a steady climb up and a flowy fast descent.
