Access: Access to Fir Ridge is from either of the Forest for the World parking lots (UNBC or Kueng rd on Cranbrook hill).
Description: Quite possibly one of the nicest trails in Prince George. Mostly single track with a few climbs up to the highest point on Cranbrook hill. A must do.
The map above and GPS files provided have this as a full loop from the FFT UNBC parking lot. The actual Fir Ridge trail is just from FFT Kueng Road to where it joins the Greenway – but the whole loop is fun!
Length: 7.4 km’s with about 830′ positive elevation gain if this is run as a full loop from the UNBC Forest for the World parking lot.
Difficulty: Pretty moderate. Single track, some logs and roots and some climbing. A bit of difficult footing. A more difficult route when compared to the rest of Forest for the World.
You can combined this with a whole number of FFT routes and even the Greenway.
