  • Site Description: This moderately difficult loop trail, that reaches the summit of Mt. Proctor at 2390 m, should be started early in the day. The first part of the trail is well developed to the Fairy Creek Falls and picnic table at 3 km. This is your last chance to fill your water bottle. From here, the trail is indistinct and route finding skills and a topographic map are necessary. As you go higher, the brush thins and the views open up. From the ridges of Mt. Proctor, the Three Sisters loom to the northwest; Fernie can be seen in the valley bottom and the peaks of the Flathead march off to the southeast. From the summit of Mt. Proctor, the route descends southeast along the rocky ridge into the forest, where the Mt. Proctor trail can be found. Follow this trail down the ridgeline to the powerline. Turn right onto the powerline and continue to follow it downhill to its intersection with the Fairy Creek Trail. Bears frequent the area and care should be taken to avoid encounters with them.

  • Driving Directions: Main Access: The trailhead is 200 m south of the Infocentre in Fernie, at the Alpine Trails subdivision sign. Go through the bar gate and take the right fork in the road, through the barbed wire fence. Please, close all gates. About 100 meters past the fence, the trail turns left onto an old skid road. Follow this skid road, which cuts across the powerline, and becomes the Fairy Creek Trail.
