Gorby Trail Description

Hiking along the Gorby Trail Loop is a great way to spend the day exploring the forests of Mount Fernie Provincial Park. Whether completing this trail on its own or pairing it up with a longer hike up through the valley, this trail offers a wealth of picturesque forest scenery that you won’t want to miss. Due to the volume of trails within the park, make sure to bring a trail map or GPS to stay on the correct route.

From the parking area at the campground, you will need to hike along the road for about 1km to reach the beginning of the trail. Here, you will immediately cross over Lizard Creek before entering into the dense cover of the forest. After roughly 0.8mi of hiking, you will come to a junction with the Old Goat Trail. Follow this to the left to continue along the southern portion of the loop through the serene woodland atmosphere. Keep an eye on your GPS as you hike along the forested trails so that you don’t get lost within the park. After crossing over several streams and one larger crossing over Lizard Creek, you will eventually arrive back at the location where you parked your vehicle.
