Challenging single-track that will spin you in circles if you do not watch closely for intersections. Challenging uphill rides. The trail has been extended in November 2016 to ride through to Fernie Alpine Resort, and is intended for winter as well as summer use. Be aware that as of Winter 2016, the section between Black Forest and the Boom Creek trail is roughed in only - easy to follow, but hard to bike without getting off and pushing.

Access Info

Ben Emmett is a spur off Black Forest and pretty hard to find. Keep your eyes peeled and take a Fernie Trail Map with you, or use Trailforks...! Easier to find from the Provincial Park side, heading out along Sherwoody and following the signs.

 Shouldn't this trail be in the Mount Fernie Provincial Park Riding Area, NOT in Morrissey Ridge?
