" Dream. Commit. Succeed. "

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Hyperventilation Trail, Fernie, BC

DSC07451

1-2hrs, a bit over 4km round-trip (hard to say exactly depending on where you start)
Elevation gain: Roughly 350m
Distance from Fernie: 5 min drive on dirt road

The trailhead you will need to follow is actually for the hiking/biking trail called “Roots”. In theory when you follow the dirt road to the trailhead, you will go down a very steep slope just before reaching the trailhead. Just don’t – stop before it, otherwise you will have to hike back up all this lost of elevation. There is a small pull out on the left-hand side of the road when you arrive just in front of a smaller logging trail where you can park and start. You will reach the Roots trail shortly on your right-hand side and can keep going up from there.

Oh, and take a minute to actually look back at the trailhead from the trail. Just because the view doesn’t get much better than this for a trailhead…

2-4hrs, 14km round-trip
Elevation gain: 300m
Distance from Fernie: Just about 5min drive West of town!

It was a pretty cloudy day, but we wanted to make the most out of our week-end. After looking up the Tourism Fernie website, we decided to hike/snowshoe up to Island Lake Lodge. We were hoping that we could drive up the road with the Jeep as much as possible, but turned out the gate was closed at the lower parking lot. So we parked and had to hike the entire 7km up to the lake. Because we hiked in the valley, we were able to have some nice views of the surrounding peaks despite the snow falling! The trail is pretty straight forward and large and goes through the valley and beautiful old forest.
