TRAIL CLOSED FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE. This is only here in case people hear about Porky Blue and are hoping to go ride it - it no longer exists. Logging along Fernie Ridge has completely removed the trail and active logging continues. The last people to attempt it precipitated a major overnight rescue by Fernie Search and Rescue after they got completely lost.
