Just off the highway at the edge of town an easy trial goes around the lake. Apart from geese, ducks and herons, I have also seen Moose here. Can take anywhere from 15 minutes to a couple of hours,, always something to see.

nice morning walk we went here after a bad night at a motel and enjoyed the short walk. Watched some canoe schooling, and some kids playing on the little beach with their dogs.

We've been to Fernie a number of times, but had never checked out the Maiden Lake Recreation Area, which is so unfortunate. Maiden Lake is a small lake on the eastern edge of town, near the Best Western, Boston Pizza and the big grocery store....More

I would not recommend swimming in this lake it is dirty and the seaweed almost reaches the dock. The dock is tilted

Beautiful lake in fernie full of little fish and a decent sandy-ish beach area . We stayed over an hour cooling off in the water and playing in the sand and rocks . Scenery is majestic. Walking trail there too.

A great little spot to have a picnic at, dip your toes in, walk all the way around it, throw rocks into, or teach your kid how to skip stones into.

Very family-friendly place. Maiden Lake is a nice small lake, conveniently located behind the Canadian Tire and Independent Food Store. The lake is surrounded by trails which are great for a stroll. In the summer there is a small beach for kids to play. Also...More
