The much anticipated Fernie flow trail. Full of tables, berms, and great views. The trail is completed as far as funds allow. Some sections are unfinished. Fun for everyone. Send it.

Be sure to scout it out properly before reaching warp speed.

Access Info

Off of Rifle Range Road Spur 1 - see map. Either ride up Rifle Range Road, or come over the top from Ridgemont.
