If biking was a three-course meal, this is the appetizer. Cemetary Trail loop will give you a teaser of Fernie Mountain biking on a friendly trail to help get you into the swing of things. If after this loop you're feeling confident and ready for more, then head further up into Ridgemont.

This loop will take approximately 30min, and has gentle climbs and descents over roots.

To find the trail head, head over the train lines from outside GearHub Sports, and up the hill. Take the first road the your right onto Ridgemont Crescent, and then the the first right again onto St. Margaret's Road. Follow this around past the cemetery, and the trail will start in front of you.
