I have wanted to come to Myra Canyon for such a long time. When the forest fires destroyed the trestles I thought I had missed my chance. Thanks to dedicated volunteers and funding from various levels of government we can ride the trestles again. This is a great place to ride a bike for those that don't have much biking... More

Drive up from Kelowna, hire bikes at the park and then ride as we did the 25km (there and back) trail over trestles. Go early or late or out of season to avoid the busy times when every man (and his family) and his dog treats this as a stroll. You'll use up half a day by the time you... More

We hiked most of this amazing trail on October 7th as we arrived mid afternoon & didn't want to miss the experience. The hiring of bikes had ceased the day before but we did not regret hiking instead. Taking 90 minutes each way, we hiked in almost 6 kms, crossing at least 12/18 of the Trestles & through 2 tunnels.... More

We cycled to the end of the trestles and stopped often to take in the view. A fairly long cycle but mostly flat. We found it cooler with the elevation and needed a Light jacket for the time of year we went.

Spent a morning biking the trails and loved it! Easy to rent bikes, or could take your own. Nicely kept trails and easy riding, as mostly flat through the canyon. Lots of great picture taking opportunities and wildlife to be seen. Highly recommend a visit!!

It is great to start the trail at a high elevation (after driving 8 kms of switchbacks to get there) and then to have a smooth flat trail to follow as you ride through tunnels and over trestles. An amazing experience.

Nice ride up to the site. Twelve km of walking or biking over a well kept former railway bed, crossing stunning historical trestles of various sizes. Also a couple of tunnels through the mountain. Great views of the valley. Really enjoyed this

We rented bikes and rode the trestle trail last weekend. We had picture perfect weather and beautiful views. The ride is flat and easy and takes about 3.5 hours with stops for photos etc. Bring water, a camera and go in the morning before it gets busy. You won't regret it!
