We cycled all the way to Chute lake which was about 40km each way. Fabulous 5 hours with stunning views. If you don't want to bike you can still walk the bridges as you have a different view from each and most of the bridges are in the first 10kms.

This was a nice rail to trail ride that takes about 3 hours round trip (at a real casual pace). A couple short tunnels and 18 or so trestles. 2% or so grade. Nice mountian scenery. I have done the Hiawatha rail to trail (Montana/Idaho). The scenery there is more spectacular but the experience is a bit more intense wiht... More

Myra Canyon park with the Kettle Valley trestle bridges is wonderful. A great place for a walk, hike or bike. Bring family and friends, and water and sunscreen. This is another of our 'go to' places when we have over sees guests visiting BC. A four wheel drive is useful but not essential for the drive up. P.S. It's pretty... More

Beautiful trail with rail trestles and tunnels! We saw a garter snake - not too scary! The bike rental is only during the day so don't be there after 4:30 if you want to rent a bike.

The worst part...like everyone else the drive up the gravel road. Once you are there the hike is easy and there are beautiful views down into Kelowna. Walking over the trestles was really cool for my 12 year old (and the parents) who loves trains. Great way to spend some quality family time on vacation.

Our youngest child is 7 and it was raining, so we didn't hike the entire way, but we got up to the second tunnel and it was great! Definitely one of our families favorite things to do in Kelowna! It is beautiful, costs nothing and was a lot of fun! Next time we would like to bike it, but I... More

My family did this by bicycle on Sunday July 20th and it was a highlight. We drove up after enquiring in town about renting bikes and decided we'd go check it out. We were from out if town and didn't have our own bikes. We were told we could rent bikes in the parking lot there. The bike rental wasn't... More

Sure, you get rattled around a bit in your car on the last 8 km gravel road up to the parking lot, but I'll guarantee that you not be disappointed by the reward of the gentle 11 km ride (or walk - many people just walk it) over the numerous trestles and through the several tunnels. The trail is very... More

The views are stunning, so fun riding the kettle valley railway trails. 18 trestles, 2 tunnels, a flat easy ride for our family. A must do if you are in Kelowna area. Amazing to see a part of Canada that no car has driven. You can hike or rent bikes.

This place was unique and free. If you bring your own bike it's totally free. If you don't have your own bike you can rent them there (not a bad idea to reserve ahead) or just walk it. The trestles are a one of a kind item, the views are remarkable and the rock cuts are amazing ( how did... More
