2hrs, 4km round-trip
Elevation gain: 120m
Finally taking some time off school to enjoy the outdoors and visit a friend in Fernie. The first trail we did was Fairy Creek Falls – you can access the trailhead just East of the town directly from Highway 3. The hike is quite easy, although there was still a bit of snow at this time of the year (Easter week-end). We didn’t need our snowshoes at this point as the snow had been quite traveled in the last few days – so here we went!
The trail splits in one smaller trail on the right, or one larger dirt road closer to the creek. Both will join a bit later into a single trail heading towards the falls. You will eventually see a junction as well for the main Fairy Creek trail, which is heading up towards Mt. Proctor and the Three Sisters trail. Keep left to follow the Fairy Creek Falls signs.
