Great hiking, biking trail. Enjoy the views and the history. 18 trestles and 2 tunnels in this section of the Kettle Valley Railroad. The best (still a little rough but cars can get up there with no problems) road is Myra Forest Road off of McCullough Rd past Gallagher's Golf Course. If you're going by Hope, BC; make sure and...

Being a lifelong fan of the Kettle Valley Railroad I was amazed to discover that the Myra Canyon train tressels still stand. I was even more thrilled to find that all the tressels can either be walked over or peddle biked over. The tracks have all been taken up but the bridges still stand. It was an amazing afternoon.

Bit challenging to find. Felt like we were on a golf cart trail for a few minutes, but it widened out. No entrance fee but donations welcomed. Bike rentals available. Lock your vehicle & hide valuables inside. They have signs posted about theft. Pack lots of water and a trail snack. Bring sunscreen and get here early to avoid crowds.... More

I live in Kelowna, and I have to say that the hype for this experience is accurate and well-worth it. After a somewhat tricky and bumpy drive up, Myra Canyon offers majestic, breathtaking views of the mountains, city, lake and forest. You are about five thousand feet in elevation above the valley, so the views offered are incredible. Despite the... More

This is an awesome experience - to follow the old Kettle Valley railway trail and to see the steep canyons and high trestles (18 of them I think). The views are great! There are lots of old style construction to wonder at and if you study the history a bit before you go you will enjoy it all the more.... More

I have been to the Myra Canyon many times and it never ceases to amaze me. The view is wonderful and the exercise doesn't hurt either. There are bikes to rent and sometimes you can feed a chipmunk or two. Take your camera and if you go other than the middle of summer, take a long a jacket.

This is a great place to walk or ride. It can be a little tough to get to but it is worth it once you get there.

Start your walk or bike ride at the further Myra Canyon main entrance to see the most trestles and tunnels on your trip. Because the path is basically flat it is an easy walk/ride for beginners yet the terrain is varied enough to interest seasoned hikers/bikers. We enjoyed our time on the trail even though it was quite cool. Dress... More

Make sure you park at the further Myra Canyon main entrance as most of the trestles and the two tunnels are a lot closer to that side. The gradient is virtually flat the whole way so this is a good hike/bike for any beginner , and is interesting enough with the trestles/tunnels that advanced outdoor people will thoroughly enjoy this...
