What a great way to spend a morning or afternoon in the mountains. The trail -- which is flat and very accessible -- winds for 12km through 18 restored train trestles and two tunnels. The scenery is breathtaking and dramatic. Note: round-trip is 24km. Bike rentals also available. Bring water and a hat. Well worth the steep drive up!

I think this is another railway achievement wonder. It is an easy day trip from Kelowna, BC. It shows how the steam railway accomplish crossing the Myra Canyon as a segment of its Kettle Valley Railway route from Midway, BC to Hope, BC. The attraction from the Myra Canyon parking lot to the lower Ruth Station parking lot is 12... More

This is a fantastic trail for all ages. My husband and I are 60 and it was just the right length for us. Our kids hauled their kids in the bike trailer and there was enough for the little kids to look at and flat enough for dad to pull the trailer. After 2 beautiful weeks in BC, this is... More

This was one of the highlights of our BC road trip! At first we were a little worried that we were lost or going the wrong way- the dirt road at the end that we took was long and seemed like it was leading to nowhere. We were so happy that we kept going! We had brought our bikes in... More

This was a side trip we took when in the area, but the road was something to be desired for the last 2 K. Very washboard and rough. We walked for a few K when there, and saw 2 of the trestles. Really pretty area, just too bad there was still smoke in the air.

EXTREME HIGH CRIME AREA. Though this is definitely one of MY MOST MEMORABLE PLACES I ever visited, it is also one of my MOST DREADED experiences I've had as a traveler. Be sure to remove all high value items from your vehicle! After the local bike rental guys pack up around 5ish, thieves are sitting in the tree line waiting... More

Went for a hike of the trail that started not in the main parking lot where the bike rentals are. Only saw two trestles on our walk (more at other end), but we enjoyed the hike tremendously. It is at least 10 degrees cooler up at Myra Canyon and there are overhead trees to shade you on your walk. Definitely... More

I had a lovely time riding the 24km return track over the old railway lines. Everyone walking and biking through seemed relaxed and happy, just enjoying the great outdoors. People of all ages and fitness can visit the canyon. The paths are well maintained without any big climbs! And you can do as much or as little of the track... More

I love a good hike with first rate views and this trail offers that and more. As the trail is level it doesn't offer any vertical challenge, but the surfaces are all excellent and lend themselves to cycling, runners, walkers, and to those with conditions who might otherwise not be able to enjoy this type of activity. We did 6... More

The trails and trestles offer access for all age groups - from children, through adults, and seniors. Visitors were walking and biking. You can rent bikes in the parking lot, but reservations are recommended (cost is $40 per bike). Bike rentals are for four hour blocks of time starting at approx 9 am and then at 1 pm. It took...
