This is a HIKING TRAIL ONLY. Not suitable for bikes.
Beautiful easy forest hike starting at scenic Island Lake Lodge, Fernie.
Allows for a gentle hike around Island Lake following lunch or dinner or when your time is limited. The Fir Trail wanders through the legendary Old Growth Forest of the upper Cedar Valley.
Mature cedar, larch and Douglas Fir line this majestic trail.
Island Lake Lodge is a worthy destination. A word- class lodge sitting above an alpine lake with majestic views up to the Three Bears mountain peaks. In the summer months you can sit on a stunning deck surrounded by flowers and enjoy gourmet lunch options and a cold beer.
2 hour round trip.
Drive out of Fernie heading South (Cranbrook direction) for 3km to Mt Fernie Provincial Park. Turn right in to the park and head up the Island Lake Road for 9km from the highway, following signs to Island Lake Lodge. Park at the Lodge and you can go in and ask for a trail map.
From the trailhead below the Bear Lodge, head down the trail to the lake and follow the signs
