It's pretty unlikely that you would find anyone whose Top 5 in Fernie does not include Brokeback. Bermed switchback after bermed switchback, fun flowy sections all on buffed single track with a few option dirt launches. Do it!

Access Info

Either ride up Hedonism and straight across the powerline and up the bottom of the S Bomb. About 10 minutes up here (all rideable up), on the left, is a big wooden sign for Brokeback Ridge.

Alternatively switch onto this as you come down S Bomb.

 Be prepared for lots of roots, roll-downs, and drops on this trail.

 So fun. Fast and rooty. Great corners and one hell of a long Dh.
