Smooth, flowy beginner trail with some berms, and bridge crossings. Definitely recommend stopping by at Island Lake Lodge for food and drink before taking the same route back down with the assistance of gravity.

From town:
This is a bi-directional route best started at the entrance gate to Island Lake Lodge shortly after leaving the Mt. Fernie Provincial Park Camp Grounds. Look out for the trail head on right

It's a steady climb for 7km all the way to Island Lake Lodge. Be wary of downhill oncoming traffic, both on bike and foot, and always be vocal to make other users and wildlife aware of your presence.

A couple of trees down and a bit of snow near the lodge, but easy enough to get over and through.
