There is some awesome scenery in this part of Kelowna as well as a great active day either biking, hiking or just going for a nice stroll. Don't forget to bring some water with you it's a good hike in some areas.

If you don't have a bicycle, rent one and go for a ride with family or friends. You can choose to take a short ride or go all the way to Penticton. Bring your own food and water. Can also walk, and turn around anytime.

Beautiful September Sunday outing, the leaves started changing to orange red and gold colors. It's very quite and peaceful. Lots of fresh air and breath taking scenery. The bridges are something else. They were newly rebuilt after the disastrous 2003 forest fire. It's a great outing for families and friends. Nice areas to have picnics also.

Myra Canyon trail is part of the Kettle Valley railway. Start at the Myra canyon end for the closest access to the many trestles and tunnels. The information boards tell the storey of the railway and the wildlife and fauna. The gentle slope is good for all ages by foot or bicycle. Bikes can be rented right at the parking... More

The first time I hiked these trestles, about 20 years ago, they had no rails. You had to place your feet carefully on the ties and try not to think about how high up you were. I practically crawled across. They've been beautifully redone with rails and decks and I get up there for a hike/bike several times a year.... More

Always interesting to see how many small animals I can see. Got some fantastic marmot photos, and a very good chipmunk picture. There are many many railway trestle bridges that are now a very well maintained hiking/walking/biking trail for several kilometres. I have seen many international travellers on these trails. Just outside the city of Kelowna.

For those who like a spectacular hike and who love nature this is a must. Watch for raptors and visiting birds as well as rhodents

Take a lunch and enjoy the scenery, we rode the train trails a few years ago in 2003 right before the fire took place. All are back to normal so try it for those that like to ride their bikes.

Back in the 1970's, I used to hike here by jumping across railway ties missing on the trestles 100ft up. Thankfully when crossing the restored trestles now, you are on a solid platform with railings so there are no near death experiences. A great experience for the whole family with breathing taking views! A gentle 3% grade makes for an... More
