Welcome to the


The FTA is an alliance representing all trail users in Fernie, BC. As a registered Charity, we work directly with member clubs, outdoor recreation groups and landowners in order to maintain and enhance Fernie’s vibrant trail using community.

The Fernie Trails Alliance acknowledges that the land on which we gather is within the Ktunaxa ?amaki? and the homeland of the Ktunaxa people. We are grateful for the use of the trails and appreciate this homeland.

Purchase Your

2022 Fernie Trails Pass

The FTA manages the majority of all of Fernie’s multi-use trails, and the year-round costs associated with them – from maintenance and trail building to winter grooming.

The Fernie Trails Pass is a way for locals and visitors to support and give back to the Fernie trail network. With options from day and weekend use, to annual single and family memberships, there is a way for everyone to support our trails.

Trail Passes and Member Club memberships run a calendar year, from Jan 1st 2021 – Dec 31st.

*Purchasing a Trails Pass is Non-Mandatory, however does bring about excellent trail karma.*



Take A Tour Of Our

Member + Supporter Clubs

Our Member Clubs sit under the umbrella that is Fernie Trails Alliance, primarily focusing on the enhancement, promotion and growth of the non-motorized, multi-use trail network.

We currently have three Member Clubs, the Fernie Mountain Bike Club , Stag Leap Running Co. and the Fernie Trails & Ski Touring Club.


Supporter Clubs also actively support the Fernie Trails Alliance, however they primarily operate on trails/areas that aren’t directly maintained by the FTA.

We currently have two Supporter Clubs, the Fernie Nordic Society and Cycling Without Age.
