Fast and Flowly Singletrack

As the only community to be included in a stage every year since the inception of the world-renowned TransRockies, Fernie is synonymous with mountain biking. Loops of singletrack leave from and return to downtown Fernie, making the ease of access second to none.

Push yourself on the steeps or enjoy family time on Fernie’s community trail network. Make it a family affair at the Dirt Jump & Skills Park, featuring large and small dirt jumps, wooden bridges, obstacles, and a pump track. Winter is no reason to put away the bikes in Fernie, as plenty of fat biking trails to explore during the snowy months. Whatever your choice of trail, Fernie has you covered.
