Bicycling the Myra Canyon Park was one of the highlights of my trip! You can bring your own bike, or rent on-site (for a price), but I definitely suggest doing this on two-wheels - there is simply too much distance to cover on foot, and you will likely be nervous sharing the trail with fast-moving cycles (and there will be...

Tour was arranged by the Conference I was attending. Lunch provided and bus trip to the head of the Myra Canyon Park with Trailhead Ed, with a history lesson on the beginnings of Kelowna and environs. Then assigned bikes and started our ride. We did 20km and because the KVR is an abandoned rail bed, the ride is almost flat... More

The day was great and the views were awesome and beautiful too. We had such a fun time biking the trail, it was a very easy trail to ride with us feeling like we were going down hill both directions. The road up the mountain was a little rough but we were traveling in a RV along with pulling a... More

While visiting Kelowna recently, we biked the 12 km rail bed trail at Myra Canyon Park. The 24 km return trip is easily accomplished in 3 hours with a lengthy lunch break halfway along. This portion of the historical KVR includes 18 trestle bridges and 2 tunnels, a hugely fun biking experience along a beautiful flat trail. The mountain top... More

We have cycled the 20+ km Myra Canyon several times, both before and after the fire. Also did the trip down to Naramata a few years ago. The vistas are great and the work done by volunteers is very much appreciated.

Drive 15 mins from downtown Kelowna and hike in nature. Both hiking and biking trails. Great views of the lake and surrounding area.

We hired bikes for a few hours and explored the 12km stretch of the old railway line around the canyon. It was really fun, there was loads to see, and it was interesting to see up close the old railway bridges.

A little bit of a trip to get their, but worth it. Bring good shoes. It offers spectacular views of the canyon, so bring a good camera if you have one. Smartphone pics won't do it justice.

If you are driving forever on a grid road and you feel like it's never going to end...you are on the right road! Once we figured that out, we had a wonderful morning. To our surprise, we could even go up there with our RV! One must be comfortable driving on dirt roads as this trail is accessed through an... More
