Please be aware that the snow conditions may vary due to current snow condition and grooming.
Please be advised to stay only on marked or designated winter bike trails, and off of the XC ski trails.

This loop takes you from downtown Fernie up through the Montane trail network. Nice climbs that meander through a clear cut, offering stunning views of the surrounding area. The ride will take you to the Montane Hut, which provides a great snack stop. Benches and bike racks will be found there as well.
Once you get to the hut feel free to turn around and follow your route back to town.. If you arrive at the hut, and feel like extending your ride, follow the rest of the loop. Please note the trail above the hut will change from Easy to Moderate rating, and it will increase the overall length of the ride.
