Route Description for Gorby Trail Loop

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.
