This is the first half of the Swine Flu climb, as far as the Mad Cow and Far Side junctions. It is easier than the second half of the climb to the top of Swine Flu, so riders looking for a blue ride can ride up to the Far Side junction and take that down, or cross Mad Cow to the second half of the Swine Flu down, which is the mellower half.

One of Fernie's classic climbs - meandering trail switching back and up through the forest, the first section from the Visitor Centre Trail has lots of flat sections to warm up on.

Access Info

Either ride over Fairy Creek Bike Bridge and follow the signs, or park at the Visitor Centre and follow the trail and signs from there.
